Imperfections marks an impressive debut effort from its tyro director.” His previous short film, Advantage: Weinberg, was selected for the prestigious Emerging Filmmaker Showcase at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. David is a also musician who has released five LPs, both solo and with his band The Sweet Science, and played hundreds of shows around the world.
