Dasvant is a noncommercial showcase for us to exhibit the work we have shot/done/distorted. It's our turn to get behind the camera. Sorry for the the glitches and mistakes.


Dasvant is derived from the word das[u]vant in Hittite language. It means blind. We have chosen it as a title for its obvious irony and as a small tribute to the cultural heritage of the land on which we live.

attack of the killer sapiens

"Attack of the.." or "Invasion of the.." films have a special place in the history of B-movies. Their stories generally center around the invasion of aliens or attack of mutated monsters. To leave all those subtexts about the cold war and anti-communism aside, in these films, it is the humanity that struggles, gets attacked and slaughtered. It's also the humanity that wins most of the time.

But, is everything so simple? Who is the invader? Does the threat have to come from outside? Is the monster always a stranger? That is why I like the "What if.." question. It opens up the space to see other possibilities, revert the cases, look awry...
