Info & Credits

Filmmaker and multidisciplinairy artist Janica Draisma was born in Zimbabwe and grew up in Zambia.
She graduated at the audio-visual department of the Rietveld Academy of Arts in Amsterdam.
Then went on to study mime (Decroux) and film in Paris, concluded her post-graduate study at DasArts and attended the Binger Filmlab as a writer-director.
Janica has produced a variety of eye-catching films, performances and choreographies.
She has become a highly personal photographer as well.
Excavating from within, Janica comes very close to mirroring all that we have to discover in ourselves.
