Liz Canner is an American filmmaker who makes documentaries, digital public art installations and new media projects on human rights issues. She often employs cutting edge technologies to explore social issues from a new perspective. A prime example of this is her critically acclaimed public cyber art documentary Symphony of a City. Her documentary Deadly Embrace: Nicaragua, The World Bank and the IMF (1995), was one of the first films to look critically at the effects of the International Monetary Fund, World Bank policy and globalization. In 2009 Canner directed Orgasm Inc.: The Strange Science of Female Pleasure (2009), a feature length investigative documentary on the pharmaceutical industry and women's health.
