It’s no wonder that filmmaker Sharyn Paul Brusie found her story of “meaning and grit” with her documentary subject Liz Leddy. Liz’s story is an inspirational tale about her transition from a 13-year-old homeless girl to an exceptional female boxer.
Now, you can watch Liz online as part of the 2015 Online New England Film Festival. It will also be showcased on the ‘big screen’ at ITVFest as part of the festival’s Screening and Awards event on September 26.
It’s no wonder that filmmaker Sharyn Paul Brusie found her story of “meaning and grit” with her documentary subject Liz Leddy. Homeless at 13, Liz lived a tragic life of despair and violence as she struggled to survive. Living in abandoned buildings on the waterfront of Portland, Maine, she battled alcoholism, an eating disorder, being raped, beaten, and a dark world of chaos.
