Elizabeth Liang

Elizabeth Liang was born in Chicago, IL, in the year 1990. Her family moved around, ultimately settling in the backwoods of Midland, Michigan. From an early age she learned that trees have their own language, which made it difficult for her to relate to children. This social confusion was compounded by the tragic haircut she received in 6th grade, because her Chinese father wanted to fulfill his fantasy of having a son, or so she believes. Eventually her hair grew long. She spent four glorious years at the University of Michigan that culminated in a debilitating fear of aliens. 

Elizabeth is an experimental filmmaker and writer. She graduated from the CalArts MFA Program in Film/Video in 2018. Her thesis film, Melon (2018), is a disembodied fictionalized documentation of the Internet, which (in its Stone Age Period) is shaped by advertising, misinformation, ideas of authorship, paranoia and humor. The film is driven by her interest in perception and how it's constructed. 

As a Digital Content and Social Media Producer she creates and edits content for the web, the 24700 blog and CalArts' official social media accounts.
