"BLOODBATH a documentary about Elizabeth McGrath"

Elizabeth McGrath artist/musician shares the story of her life. Growing up in Altadena, CA and raised by religious parents, Elizabeth found an inner peace through her art and music.

When she was 13 years old her parents enrolled her in Victory Christian Academy, a fundamental Christian lock-down facility for girls. After leaving the school she encountered a time of homelessness, drugs and an abusive relationship that left her emotionally paralyzed.

Using her artistic talents to find work, she struggled to survive in Downtown LA where she remains today. Her art and music career has flourished over the years and now she is considered a prominent figure in the world of music and art.

Through interviews with her parents, friends, bandmates and artistic peers, this documentary shows that Liz McGrath has a urgent need for the cathartic outlet of art and music.
