Liza: A Truly Terrific Absolutely True Story

A Truly Terrific Absolutely True Story were the words Liza Minnelli used in her iconic introduction for the song “Ring Them Bells” at her 1972 New York concert. Born with a spotlight on her life, Liza’s story has never been told absolutely or truly. From the speculation that her beloved godmother Kay Thompson’s “Eloise” series was about her to the gossip rags that hounded her for decades, many were searching for insight into the talented and charismatic performer, but few got it right. This equal parts eye-opening, thoughtful and hilarious documentary is here to correct that, with Liza getting to tell her story in her own words.

Rich with archival gems and Liza Minnelli’s own point of view, Bruce David Klein‘s luminous documentary celebrates a young entertainer full of boundless raw talent and the deep, creative relationships with her mentors and influences.––Faridah Gbadamosi

I worked with Bruce and the team at Atlas Media Corp to create the film’s graphics package, archival treatments, and give the film some extra sparkle in true Liza fashion. The film premiered at the 2024 Tribeca Film Festival.
