Daniel Drasin

 

 

Dan was born on September 23, 1942 and was raised in New Jersey and New York City. In the early 1970s he moved to the San Francisco Bay Area.  His original career trajectory was toward Industrial Design.  However, after meeting the Cinema Vérité pioneers Albert Maysles, D. A. Pennebaker and Richard Leackock in the early 1960s, he became their apprentice and never looked back.  His career in independent media production (film, video, radio, photography, music production and writing) has now spanned five decades.  Since 1995 Dan has been probing various aspects of the afterlife, including near-death experiences, out-of-body experiences, life between lives, and reincarnation. He has earned more than two dozen international awards for films that he produced or photographed.  His 1961 documentary film Sunday, widely acknowledged as one of the first social-protest films of the 1960s, is part of the permanent film collection at New York’s Museum of Modern Art and was recently restored by the UCLA Film and Television archive.
