As a filmmaker, Liliana Resnick explores tensions between the inner world of human beings and the exterior world that encloses them. She works in narrative, documentary and experimental style and often mixes them all.
She studied film in San Francisco and she holds a Master of Fine Arts in Cinema from San Francisco State University (she completed the program in December 2004.) Prior to that, Liliana studied gymnastics until age 14. She entered the dance world in order to improve her mime movement while at the same time studying philosophy and comparative literature at the University of Zagreb in Croatia. After graduating, she started to work as a choreographer which brought her a research scholarship upon which she spent two years in Beijing, studying movement in Peking Opera performances at the Academy of Chinese Traditional Theater, and Taijiquan. Beside choreographing and filmmaking, Liliana also writes on the topics of film, dance and art. Her writings have been published by many magazines and newspapers including Croatia’s Vijenac and Arkzin, and Germany’s Ballet/Tanz.
Liliana’s film work has become central in her search through different forms of expression. The short form gives her a freedom and convenience to explore many different styles while experimenting with themes and visuals. A feature length form gives her a possibility to reveal the complexity of the world we live in through exploration of narrative.
