Dasha Nekrasova Career
Nekrasova first appeared in music videos for alternative artists such as Yumi Zouma. She later made her film debut in Wobble Palace, which she co-wrote with director Eugene Kotlyarenko. She also appeared as the leading character in the dark comedy The Softness of Bodies, with The Hollywood Reporter saying she inhabited the role “effortlessly”.
Her interview with right-wing media outlet InfoWars went viral while she was promoting Wobble Palace at the 2018 South by Southwest Festival. She was nicknamed “Sailor Socialism” for expressing her support for Bernie Sanders, while dressed in a Japanese schoolgirl outfit resembling Sailor Moon. The clip was featured in a segment on Venezuela in an episode of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.
Nekrasova started the podcast Red Scare with co-host Anna Khachiyan on March 29, 2018. The show has been associated with the dirtbag left and described in The Cut as “a critique of feminism, and capitalism, from deep inside the culture they’ve spawned.” Daily Dot said the show’s “schtick” had been summed up by former congressional staffer Simone Norman, as “when hot mean girls become public leftists.”
Nekrasova made her directorial debut with The Scary of Sixty-First in 2020. The thriller was co-written with Madeline Quinn and inspired by the death of Jeffrey Epstein. The film premiered at the 71st Berlin International Film Festival and it won the prize for Best First Feature. Nekrasova co-wrote the short film, Spectacular Reality, later that year (2020). The film was inspired by conspiracies surrounding crisis actors and featuring models from No Agency New York. She also directed the November 6, 2020 video performance of Oneohtrix Point Never’s “I Don’t Love Me Anymore” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
