In Elizabeth Liang’s one woman show, Alien Citizen, we watch her attempt to put down roots across the globe, which can evoke memories of our journey home with its twists and turns. The film begs the question, so where’s home? The answer is never as simple as it seems for someone who embodies the nomad definition. Is Elizabeth a "smart expat"--whatever that means--or just a kid trying to make friends when her family is on short term international assignments or long-term engagements? The search for identity, as well as the sometime refusal to search and learn, weaves thematically through this TCK solo show and film put together by a first-class production team. Alien Citizen was screened at international and mixed-race film festivals and can be streamed online now.
