This combination of cinema verite and old school avant-garde techniques is a pioneering example of feminist filmmaking. Three women speak about their lives, their histories and their struggles as women at a time when the Women's Liberation movement had just begun.
Though at times a bit slow-moving Three Lives is a precious document of a moment in time, an era not so long ago when women's lives were very different than they are today. The first US feature length film to be entirely created by women, Three Lives presents the stories of three women: Over a montage of New York City streets Mallory Millet-Jones talks about her marriage and the experience of leaving her husband to have her own life; Lillian Shreve reminisces about her first love, her parents and the expectations for a young woman coming of age during WWII. And Robin Mide raps about her crazy life as a nice Jewish girl from Queens who grows up to be a hippie lesbian performance artist.
