In her innovative new documentary, Flying: Confessions of a Free Woman, award-winning filmmaker Jennifer Fox takes us on her intensely compelling personal journey that reaches across traditional boundaries of geography and culture to explore potent issues of love, sex, gender, age, and family. A single woman in her forties, Jennifer is by all conventional counts a modern liberated woman. A successful independent filmmaker, whose work includes the highly acclaimed PBS mini-series An American Love Story, Fox enjoys steady sexual relationships with two men, and lives alone with her dog in a comfortable lower Manhattan town house. However, when she turns her camera on herself, the intricacy, contradictions, secrets, and challenges of her life begin to emerge. With remarkable candor, she explores her feelings towards the two men in her life: Patrick, a Swiss executive, and Gae, a South African man who is married with two children. JenniferÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂs decision to have a child opens a plethora of emotional problems as well as a flood of memories and revelations from her childhood. Like all good storytellers, Jennifer keeps you in a Scheherazade-like state of wondering what will happen next. FoxÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂs film is protected from any potentially narcissistic overtones by the numerous women from around the world who she interviewed during her travels to 17 countries, including India, Russia, Cambodia, and South Africa. JenniferÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂs intimate camera-style, which often involves literally passing the camera back and forth to break down the traditional barriers between interviewer and subject, takes us deeply into these womenÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂs lives. Flying is an epic, densely novelistic portrait of the opportunities and dilemmas facing women in 2007 on planet Earth. ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂVic Skolnick
