"Three Ages" is a sparkling comedy, included in our program to celebrate the work and contributions of our star Joe Roberts. 

"Three Ages" is Buster Keaton's first feature film. Before that he created 19 amazing short comedies and Joe Roberts was his partner in 16 of them.

"Three Ages" tries to prove the point that love has not changed throughout human history, on the example of the stone age, the Roman civilization and modern times.
