TIFF documentary programmer Thom Powers curates a monthly Doc Club series for the On Demand service SundanceNow entitled "Spin the Globe," and May's spotlight film is Jennifer Fox's six-hour, Danish-funded documentary "Flying: Confessions of a Free Woman."

The film, which Fox culled from her own life, shooting with a special video camera to create a survey of female dynamics across disparate cultures, originally premiered at Sundance in 2007. As Fox -- whose filmography includes 1987's Sundance award winner "Beirut: The Last Home Movie" -- pursues her career as a documentary filmmaker, she encounters and interviews various women from South Africa and Cambodia to India and Pakistan. Read more about the film in TOH's past coverage of Jennifer Fox here, and an Indiewire interview here.

"Flying: Confessions of a Free Woman" will begin streaming for SundanceNow subscribers on May 1. Trailer below.
