Jennifer Fox's Hit Feminist Manifesto and Real-Life Soap Opera "Flying: Confessions of A Free Woman" Now Available Nationwide
New York, NY, September 06, 2008 --( “Jennifer Fox’s “Flying” should be Required Viewing for every woman!”
— Candace Bushnell, Creator, Sex in the City

Flying: Confessions of A Free Woman, the six-part, real-life Sex in the City by acclaimed documentary filmmaker Jennifer Fox, is now available at and select websites focused on supporting women.

This six-hour, documentary saga about the modern female experience tracks a 40-something New Yorker (Fox herself) struggling to comprehend her “free” lifestyle, unfettered by marriage, children and the gender biases of traditional cultures. Turning the camera on herself, Fox – at once powerful and vulnerable – travels to over 17 countries to understand how diverse women from around the world define their lives and their gender. In her investigation of the universal issues women face, Fox employs an ingenious new camera technique called “passing the camera,” creating a special cinematic language that mirrors the way women communicate with each other. As she explores the challenges faced by Cambodian prostitutes and Somali women who have undergone circumcision, the filmmaker finds surprising connections to her own life. With raw, illuminating and utterly personal conversations around kitchen tables from South Africa to Russia, India and Pakistan, Fox initiates a revolutionary dialogue as she maps universal concerns across race, class and nationality. The result is an epic, delectable, six-hour series that the New York Times calls, “Playful, tragic, contemplative…an addictive soap about sexuality and sisterhood.”

After rave reviews surrounding its airing on the Sundance Channel, Flying is now available to own on DVD, for smart, sensitive women everywhere to enjoy at their leisure. Viewed with friends, Flying is a guaranteed conversation starter. For a limited time, the film is available direct from the distributor at, and for every DVD purchased from the renowned organization Our Bodies Ourselves (, viewers can reap the added satisfaction of knowing that a $3 donation will be contributed to their cause.

On November 11, 2008, Flying: Confessions of A Free Woman will become widely available everywhere videos are sold. For complete information, embeddable film clips and high resolution film stills, visit:
