About David Tucker.
David studied psychology and worked in human services before coming to film making relatively late in life. He began by making short documentaries for film festivals and for non-government organisations working in Asia. His desire to make My Thai Bride stemmed from a long-standing interest in the relationship between developed and developing worlds. My Thai Bride is David’s first long-form film.
