Filmmaker Biography

D.W. Young made his directorial debut with the award-winning documentary A HOLE IN A FENCE (First Run Features, 2008), which chronicles the changing landscape of a small corner of Red Hook, Brooklyn. In 2010, Young’s short film NOT INTERESTED premiered at SXSW before screening at such festivals as Sarasota, Provincetown, Vancouver and Maryland.

Young’s narrative feature THE HAPPY HOUSE was released by First Run Features in 2013 and was described by Film Journal as “A wonderfully droll horror comedy with a memorably weird cast of characters.” Most recently, his short A FAVOR FOR JERRY, a doc/narrative hybrid filmed on election night 2016, screened at IFF Boston and the Maryland Film Festival. He is currently working on a feature documentary about the rare book world.
