Camera is my second eye. To every project I bring a new approach with creative results.
Many hours spent in front of the computer. Many cigarettes smoked. But at the end I love the editing process and the satisfaction of the end result
As a freelance I am part of any stage of the film process and producing is one part of it. I can make things happen, lets put it like that. Visit my vimeo page to see all my work.
Dasa Raimanova, originally from Slovakia, is a London based freelance filmmaker. She graduated with BA in Film, Video and Interactive Arts at Middlesex University. Her work explores socio-political topics, generally focussing on the stories of strong women. Her interest is in ordinary people with extra ordinary live.
Her short documentary “1 Squat, 28 people, 10 dogs, 6 cats & a mum’s visit” got nominated for best doc at the Portobello Film Festival and her most recent success is ‘Resistance Recipes’, a food and farming themed documentary highlighting the everyday struggles of Palestinians in the West Bank. The film has been selected for the London, Bristol and Toronto Palestine Film Festivals.
Before moving to the UK, Dasa studied for MA in Biological Anthropology in Austria, and France and spent two years in India learning the art of Bharata Natyam – South Indian traditional dance.
Apart from film and photography related work, Dasa is involved in various independent activist groups and arts collectives, regularly organising direct actions and cultural events stretching from alternative fashion shows to prisoner’s support benefits.
