Rosenthal was born in New York City, New York, the son of Dr. Mitchell S. Rosenthal, founder and Chairman of Phoenix House, and cookbook author Ellen Wright.[citation needed]

He was educated at Pomfret School in Connecticut and went on to graduate with a Bachelor of Arts from Colorado State University, a Master of Fine Arts in Poetry from Sarah Lawrence College and a Master of Fine Arts in Filmmaking from the American Film Institute.[3]

Rosenthal’s career with film began with writing and photography at a young age. Growing up in New York City, he began shooting and studying photography in high school, and started writing soon after. He earned a Masters in poetry from Sarah Lawrence College and subsequently began publishing poetry in such literary magazines as The Paris Review. David’s first book of poetry was published in 2000. In the same year he became a member of The Actors Studio playwrights unit with Mark Rydell.[citation needed]

Rosenthal’s love of writing and film soon led him to the American Film Institute, where he received another Master’s degree. A year after graduating, his first short film, Absence was bought and distributed to networks around the world including Canal+, HBO Latin America, PBS, Encore, and Starz.[citation needed]

His documentary feature, entitled Dylan’s Run, which he produced and directed, followed the campaign trail of Dylan Glenn, who made history by becoming the first black republican to run for a congressional seat in the Deep South since Reconstruction.[citation needed]
