28-Days Film Screening: Flying: Confessions of a Free Woman--The Things All Women Share 

DESCRIPTION: 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. Chapter Four: CRASH AND BURN The things all women share… USA (NYC), Russia (Moscow & suburbs), Britain (London); Cambodia (Phnom Pen and Poi Pet) Jen discovers she is pregnant but miscarries. Heartbroken, she heads for Russia where she meets Svetlana, whom she confides in about some unresolved secrets from her past. Sveta convinces Jen she must fly to Zurich to see Patrick, but can they see eye to eye about the miscarriage? Afterwards, she flies to Cambodia to meet Chanthol, who runs a shelter for trafficked women. There, Jen is pained to discover that women who are tricked into sex before marriage have little other choice than to become prostitutes…
