Films by Filmmaker
Liz Cane is an independent filmmaker based in Los Angeles, California. She grew up in Northern California during the '70’s and '80's, surrounded by political activists, hippies, schizophrenics and bra burners. Her parents stood before bull-dozers (to protect low-income housing) and demonstrated against the war in Vietnam. As a little girl, Liz was convinced the government was spying on her because she was gifted, and they were doing research on her. She has always been fascinated with the intersection of fantasy and reality, a theme which often finds its way into her films.
Liz's films have aired nationally on PBS, won awards and screened in festivals around the world. She makes both narrative and documentary films that explore love, sex, taboos, friendship, delusion and death. Liz teaches filmmaking at the University of California, Irvine, and is preparing for her first feature film.
