The first installment of this series will feature Long Island Blues Society  
member Pat Cisarano.  Pat has been called the best White Blues Singer in  the 
World by Tony Bennett and damn near everybody else that has ever heard  her.

Memoirs have been in the news a  lot lately - particularly when
they turn out to be less than truthful (thus  making Oprah very
angry). The solution? Let's go to the videotape! That's  what
globe-trotting filmmaker Jennifer Fox did - capturing five years
of  her own rocky personal life, with stops along the way to chat
up women  everywhere.

Flying: Confessions of a Free Woman (on the Sundance  Channel
beginning 5/5) is a six-hour DIY miniseries that mixes Fox's  own
up-front video diary (she's often literally naked, struggling
with the  choice between two lovers) with the enlightening
onscreen confessions she  elicits from women in 17 countries.
It's these heartbreaking stories from  Pakistan, Cambodia,
Somalia - tales of ritual genital mutilation,  teenage
prostitution, enforced marriage - that make Fox (and her
audience)  realize that maybe simply being unlucky in love is the
least bad luck of  all.
