B: 1969 in Toronto, Ontario
Beginning in the 1990s Liz Marshall has created broadcast, theatrical, grassroots and cross-platform documentaries that she shot around the world, which focus on a range of subjects including: animal rights; the right to water movement; HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa; sweatshop labour; corporate-globalization; gender; censorship affecting writers and journalists, and war-affected children. Marshall is well versed in the craft of conceptual point-of-view storytelling as a means of exploring complex world issues. Her 2014 short, Weight of Memory captured a performance by Dancer/Choreographer Peggy Baker in memory of the fourteen women slain on December 6, 1989 at Montreal’s École Polytechnique. Her 2019 film Meat the Future, which is not a typo, was selected to screen at the 2020 Hot Docs Film Festival and when the festival was postponed it was one of the films to be programmed on Hot Docs at Home on CBC.
