A bitch is addicted to Doc Day on the Sundance Channel.
I love it!
Every Monday they show documentary films and they usually debut one on Monday nights.
Did I mention that I love Doc Day?
Anyhoo, a certain someone sent this bitch an e-mail with a heads-up about a documentary series airing on Sundance that I probably should have told you about yesterday but…well, a bitch is busy and you chil’ren know how to use the internets.
Flying: Confessions of a Free Woman is a 6 part series that investigates the issues that women face throughout the word today: balancing work and family, abortion, infertility and IVF, sexual abuse, Female Genital Mutilation, sex-trafficking and self-determination among many other issues.
A bitch caught episodes 1 and 2 and I am hooked! Jennifer Fox is the subject/narrator/director/creative force behind this fascinating exploration of life. The first 2 episodes were strangely foreign and I didn’t expect them to be. My life is so removed from Fox’s life that I found myself not relating to her…but then I was dragged back because she’s just so fascinating.
Fox (in her early 40’s) agonizes of whether to have a baby and then says that if she were ever to have a baby she’d have to confront her ambivalence towards motherhood. A bitch isn’t a parent…unless you count my sorta-beagles…so I’m confused as hell by this. Does Fox want to have a baby but not be a parent? ‘Cause that’s do-able. Or is she scared that having a baby will change her, which is a different thing altogether?
See, that’s the kind of shit that is layered in on top of Fox’s relationship with a married lover and relationship with another lover she doesn’t love...her friends and their perspective and input...and the folks she works with all over the world.
Anyhoo, a bitch plans to watch the rest of the series…I’m pretty sure I’d break out into hives if I missed it, I’m so anxious to know what the hell happens…and the nice folks at Zohe Films are offering all y’all a 15% discount on all DVD orders of the film.
