What is their why?

“The feelings of shame and guilt regarding the struggle to take care for a disabled loved one or a family member can be very isolating. Many people suffer in silence, because there’s little understanding for these emotions, which often are perceived as selfish or incompetent. With Nest I wanted to shine a light on this subject.”

Liza Koifman studied Production Design at the Dutch Film Academy. After graduation she gravitated towards the fashion industry and started a men’s clothing label with her life partner Tomas Overtoom. After ten years in the fashion business Liza returned to her initial first love, which is film. This time she takes a dive into independent filmmaking as a writer, director and actor.
