Recently, Dosa co-directed an Emmy nominated episode of the Netflix music series Re-Mastered about Johnny Cash's 1970 concert for Richard Nixon. Dosa's third feature as a director, "The Seer & The Unseen," premiered in 2019, winning awards at a number of festivals, including the McBaine Bay Area Documentary Prize at its SFIFF premiere. "The Seer & The Unseen" was called "Captivating, strong and surprising" by The Hollywood Reporter and "Elegant, deft and inquisitive" by Variety, and "Sublime" by The Playlist. As a producer, she produced the Peabody winning "Audrie & Daisy" (2016 Sundance / Netflix Originals); and the Peabody and Emmy-nominated "Survivors" (2018 IDFA / POV).
