Hear how Jennifer trekked solo around the globe, filmed in 17 countries, developed characters and content, raised film funding, secured broadcast on seven networks, international film festivals and theaters, and created a co-production deal with an international programmer. Jennifer will share what this experiment taught her about the craft of documentary and discuss the business side of creating a six-part personal memoir series -- as a woman. FLYING: CONFESSIONS OF A FREE WOMAN will open theatrically on July 4 at the Film Forum in NYC and is scheduled for a national theatrical and college tour. It will be broadcast on the Sundance Channel in spring 2008.
ABOUT THE FILM
Never before in our collective human history have so many women had such autonomy to construct a life of their own creation. Yet, the terrain is still rocky and 'choice' does not necessarily bring happiness, let alone freedom. Meanwhile, old models of femaleness still haunt women everywhere.
In this six-hour tour de force, FLYING: CONFESSIONS OF A FREE WOMAN, master storyteller Jennifer Fox lays bare her own turbulent life to penetrate what it means to be a free woman today. As her drama of work and relationships unfolds over four years, our protagonist travels to over seventeen countries to understand how diverse women define their lives when there is no map. Employing an ingenious new camera technique, called "passing the camera", Fox creates a documentary language that mirrors the special way women communicate. Over intimate conversations around kitchen tables from South Africa to Russia, India and Pakistan, she initiates a groundbreaking dialogue among women, illuminating universal concerns across race, class and nationality. Part delectable soap opera, sociopolitical inquiry, and narrative experiments, FLYING sweeps us up into an addictive international adventure chronicled with sincerity, innovation and elegance.
