Flying - Confessions of a Free Woman, Part 1

About This Episode


In this two part documentary, 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 and Russia to India and Pakistan, she initiates a groundbreaking dialogue among women, illuminating universal concerns across race, class and nationality.
