Sasha Perry is an award-winning freelance documentary filmmaker and videographer based in Los Angeles. Born and raised in Las Vegas, Sasha started in film by covering local protests against nuclear testing sites, animal abuse, and the poor treatment of the city’s homeless population. Escaping Las Vegas, Sasha moved to California, and earned a BFA in Film Production at Chapman University, while continuing to promote social justice through creative and engaging filmmaking. Two of Sasha’s first films traveled around the world playing at film festivals in Japan, Germany, South Africa, and more.
Currently Sasha is working on a feature length documentary exploring the use of Terrorism to scapegoat activists in the US, editing a short “Whatinit Abafazi,” about the stigma and effects of HIV/AIDS on youth in South Africa, and directs/edits a monthly web series on vegan nutrition and athleticism. Sasha has also facilitated video literacy and advocacy training workshops in Hebron, Palestine and Nekkies, South Africa. An avid athlete, Sasha also lends film skills to AdventureCORPS events, including a 508 mile bicycle race, and a 135 mile ultra-marathon in Death Valley, filming and editing for the race’s live webcast. Outside of film Sasha continues to raise support and funds for environmental, animal rights, and LGBTQ groups by organizing benefit shows, vegan brunches, and letter writing campaigns in Los Angeles.
