Radim Lisa


I work as a freelance researcher, visual archivist and writer for audiovisual series, documentaries and books.

In my practice I dive into topics with focus to get the most important knowledge and explore new perspectives to create a story, narrative or build a character. I love conducting interviews and I love action.
