Video was only one medium in Dara’s amazing body of work, but every bit of her brilliance, sharp social and political critique, and raucous sense of humor comes through in the videos she made. Last November, Dara and Todd Chandler spent an afternoon going through her hard drives and consolidating over 20 videos in an effort to catalog them online. They’re going up on a Vimeo page – right now there are 16 pieces on there and the rest will be uploaded soon. Please watch, share, and screen widely.
