How far would you go to belong? In LIZA ANONYMOUS, Liza takes it too far.
In Latinx writer Leah McKendrick’s film, Liza’s desperate search to fit in gets her wrapped up in a tangle of lies and ill-informed emulation. As her charade crumbles, she learns that imitation is not the sincerest form of flattery, but finds solace in the most unlikely of places.
The theme of isolation and loneliness in the film are particularly resonant right now during the Covid-19 crisis, a time of unprecedented forced separation.
The film stars Danielle Beckmann (Eat Our Feelings) as Liza, Daniel Fox (In My Skin) as Milton, Rafael Sardina (War of the Worlds) as Diego, Malikha Mallette (Daredevil) as Kris, Lida Darmian (The Place We Live) as Carmen, Sharon Gallardo (Live from the Drive) as Esperanza, and Jane Geller as Susan.
