DINA (2016) is an impromptu, free form documentary short produced on location in Las Vegas, Nevada during the course of a sleepy family vacation. The subject of the film, Dina, is a Vegas native and blind mother of two who performs for donations on the strip in a strange and unconventional manner; she is neither a curiosity or novelty to tourists and passers by like the performers around her, but rather a fixture of busking culture and a characterization of homelessness that appear to render her invisible in passing.

In contrast to this perspective, Dina stands out from the traditionally exaggerated, highly caricatured topography of performers in Las Vegas. Unlike many of the loud and animated one liners that flood the strip and rely on recycled street acting culture to demand attention, Dina’s performance is fraught with an unusual tension between the sullen desperation of cold soul in search of shelter, and the lighthearted orchestration of a karaoke performer at her peak.

Half way through the production of the film, Dina was joined unannounced by her two children, wheelchair bound father, and her husband, who had apparently come to watch her perform and take her home at the end of the day. The children were spirited and earnest in front of the camera, and as they danced in excitement, a small crowd began to gather. Despite the context of the performance, the family maintained a candid euphoria.

I did not find it necessary to interrogate Dina about her life, why she was performing or what her driving circumstances were, but rather made a sincere attempt at illuminating a distinctly peculiar and aesthetic performance that might have been given very little time otherwise.

The film was extemporarily shot over the course of two hours on the 1st of January, 2016, entirely in camera and on a small stabilizer with no other equipment or crew.
