Daria "Dasha" Dmitrievna Nekrasova (Belarusian: Дарья "Даша" Дзімтрыеўна Некрасова; born February 19, 1991) is a Belarusian-American actress, writer, director and co-host of the podcast Red Scare. In 2018, she became known as "Sailor Socialism"; her interview with an InfoWars reporter, in which she was dressed in a sailor fuku, went viral.
Nekrasova first appeared in music videos for alternative artists such as Yumi Zouma, before making her film debut in Wobble Palace, which she co-wrote with director Eugene Kotlyarenko. The New York Times described the film as "a sendup of broke-artist types that shimmers with abashed affection", while RogerEbert.com commented that "while your comedic milage with its loose goofiness may vary, this movie succeeds in contributing a filmic time capsule" for millenials. She appeared as the leading character in the dark comedy The Softness of Bodies, with The Hollywood Reporter saying she inhabited the role "effortlessly".
While promoting Wobble Palace at the 2018 South by Southwest Festival, her interview with right-wing media outlet InfoWars went viral. She was nicknamed "Sailor Socialism" for expressing her support for Bernie Sanders, while dressed in an Japanese schoolgirl outfit resembling Sailor Moon. The clip was featured in a segment on Venezuela in an episode of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.
On March 29, 2018, Nekrasova started the podcast Red Scare with co-host Anna Khachiyan. The show has been associated with the dirtbag left and described in The Cut as "a critique of feminism, and capitalism, from deep inside the culture they’ve spawned." Daily Dot said the show's "schtick" had been summed up by former congressional staffer Simone Norman, as "when hot mean girls become public leftists."
In 2020, Nekrasova made her directorial debut with The Scary of Sixty-First, a thriller co-written with Madeline Quinn, and inspired by the death of Jeffrey Epstein. The film premiered at the 71st Berlin International Film Festival and won the prize for Best First Feature. Later that year, Nekrasova co-wrote the short film, Spectacular Reality, inspired by conspiracies surrounding crisis actors and featuring models from No Agency New York, and directed the November 6, 2020 video performance of Oneohtrix Point Never's "I Don't Love Me Anymore" on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
