INTERVIEW WITH THE SHOESTRING

Shelf Life writer Liz Walber on everything.

By Charlotte Murtishaw and Liz Walber

July 14, 2019


Local filmmaker Liz Walber is the director of the in-progress indie production Shelf Life, a “dyke love story at the end of the world.” The movie follows protagonist Golda as she makes her rounds as a courier for a doomsday Amazon, dropping off tomb-trinkets for the all-too-human, all-too-damned residents of western Massachusetts on one of the last days of Earth. Walber wrote the script following their graduation from Smith College in 2016; currently, the crew is set to film at the end of the summer for a slated 2020 release. In the meantime, they agreed to sit down with the Shoestring to discuss staying local, being gay in Lesbianville USA, and living through the endtimes.
