FLYING: Confessions of a Free Woman


Jennifer Fox

FLYING: Confessions of a Free Woman is a feature-length documentary in which the filmmaker’s life serves as a vehicle for investigating female identity across countries, cultures, ages and sexual orientations. The film uses experimental, participatory narrative techniques, including passing the camera among subjects during group interviews, to break down the traditional barrier between a filmmaker and the people she portrays. Breaking from her previous works, Fox constructs FLYING around her own experience, allowing audiences to better understand the relationship of the film to its author and its subject to its viewer.
