Eliza Smiles takes an observational lens into the uniquely crafted life of a vegan, lesbian, feminist stripper. Filmed during a point of psychological transformation in life of one person, themes of identity, choice, and passion swirl throughout with a reflective, avant-garde tone.

Filmed and directed by Steven Jon in a verite style completely unscripted. An original score was created and recorded by Philadelphia based underground band Noise & Silence.
