Three Girls and Three Babies tells the story of 16 year olds Becki, Stacey and Vanessa, all close friends living in Rochdale, where unemployment rates are high and teenage pregnancy is above the national average. Filmed over twelve months, this poignant observational documentary captures a coming of age period when there are three pregnancies within the group. Told with warmth and humour, this is an intimate portrait of three young women directed by Bafta winning documentary maker Morgan Matthews.

“Sympathetic and non-obtrusive portrait”
Peter Watts, Time Out

“If it’s authenticity, grit and life lessons you’re looking for, these girls are the real deal”
Jane Simon, Daily Mirror
