518    Originally produced by New Day Films in 2003. 
520    Liberty explores the deep connections in a circle of 
       lesbian friends as they face death and celebrate life and 
       love. Viewers say Liberty has documented the meaning of 
       community with rare grace and wit. It is not a wimpy, 
       weepy tale by a mile, but a keen celebration of family 
       values. Liberty demystifies death, dispels misinformation 
       about age and sexual orientation, and reminds us how rich 
       life is, even in the shadow of death. Part One: Death to 
       Life records the death of Joyce Fulton, 66. In the opening
       scenes, we see her, wasted, beyond speech, with a group of
       friends around her who are helping her out of this world. 
       Moving backwards in time, we then observe the process of 
       Joyce's terminal brain cancer over the course of two 
       years. In a sense, we see Joyce moving from sick to well, 
       becoming the person she was on the day she celebrated 
       retiring from teaching high school four years earlier. 
       Part Two: Life to Death is a reminiscence of Mary Bell 
       Wilson, 79, described by one of her friends as "a 
       Katherine Hepburn type." She is a long time friend of 
       Joyce Fulton, and Joyce reappears several times in Life to
       Death. Before Mary Bell dies, she has high hopes of 
       building a new home with her lover and partner of 25 years
       and of riding in Dykes on Bikes in the San Francisco Gay 
       Pride Parade. With indefatigable courage, she faces up to 
       her own losing struggle with lymphoma. Part Three: Life is
       about Nan Golub, a close friend of both Joyce and Mary 
       Bell. In New York, in winter, we see her living as an 
       artist -- a black-leather-jacketed, platinum-dyed city 
       woman. In one sequence she sketches a family tree of the 
       women we've met earlier and suddenly we have a more vivid 
       idea of who they were and what they've meant to each 
       other. Golub ties the three parts of the documentary 
       together and reminds us that in spite of tragedy and death,
       life is worth living, even worth celebrating.
