“I have a lot of mistrust of the surface... My work is always trying to investigate what’s underneath the appearance of things,” says Jennifer Fox, who achieved international recognition with her first feature doc, Beirut: The Last Home Movie. She went on to direct Bill and Karen: An American Love Story, a 10-hour project that made the New York Time’s 1999 list of Top Ten TV series. With Flying: Confessions of a Free Woman, she incorporates a participatory pass-the-camera approach into an unflinching autobiographical reflection on contemporary femininity. Her feature documentary Learning to Swim, about the last lama to be trained in Tibet, is a co-production with the Dutch Buddhist TV Network and has been over 15 years in the making.
