"Nightflight: Demimonde of a Feminist Auteur (Pts. I & II)"

Submitted by Sandra, Married, 40 Years-old, London, 03/27/2008

"I am a mum, a so called 'modern mum,' one of those who are mums & wife & student & professional & themselves... Maybe, as a result, I am none of those. Sometimes I am all of those. And most of the time I am looking for a balance between them all... Professionally I teach at university, and I also do a PhD about interactive documentaries. I am married to a French man that is also a 'modern' man: aiming for the perfect husband, perfect father and perfect professional award. It looks like we are the 'modern couple.' In reality we are jugglers: we are the jugglers of our 'modern' and 'free' world."

"Since I first heard of Flying back in June, I had been dying to see it. I felt so connected to the idea of a personal journey that is driven by the experiences and the learning from others. Turned out Flying was even more remarkable than I could have imagined. There is such a need for women to connect in these honest ways, and through the opportunities technology has given us, it is now all the more easy and therefore important.

This video only shows a glimpse of the relationship I have with my mother."

"Thank you so much for this amazing idea! After we ran out of space on my camera's memory card, we just sat there for a few minutes trying to decide when our next "Passing the Camera" session would be. Since my friends and I are so close, we decided we wanted to record at least one hour of conversation every few months as a sort of video time capsule of who we were at the time. We can't wait!"
