This documentary by Buffy Childerhose chronicles the first all-female music tour in the annals of time. The Lilith festivals took place outdoors over the summer of 1997, playing to sold-out audiences comprised of both women and men. The enthusiastic response from a mixed gender audience should have set to rest the resistance of the male-dominated concert tour industry, which persists in the idea that the musical artistry of women is not marketable. The name Lilith was appropriate, which is the mythological, biblical, and astrological name of the woman who dared to believe in her own equality and defied the patriarchal god. Interviews with musician/Lilith Fair founder Sarah McLachlan, as well as other artists, gives insight into the difficult and rewarding process of putting together this production Highlights of the Lilith Fair performances include musical offerings from the Indigo Girls, Sheryl Crow, Jewel, Meredith Brooks, Shawn Colvin, and Sarah McLachlan.
