David Adler was accepted into the prestigious National Film School of Denmark after having attended the Visual Arts & Design program at the Vancouver Film School.


Latest work is the companion piece TASTE OF HUNGER VR(2020), co-produced with Zentropa and selected for completion at Venice Film Festival. 


Adler’s movies are most often rooted in particular historical periods or events. His first major student production HVID (WHITE) was a tale of patricide during the era of the great polar expeditions. SORT (No Man's Land) was, just as his award-winning game “1916 – DER UBEKANNTE KRIEG”, inspired by a young soldiers journal from the trenches of the First World War. 


During his time at the National Film School of Denmark, Adler has developed his own style to work with mixed techniques. This combined with a strong conviction that the medium contains a much greater potential than its most commonly used for.
