Abstract:

Our Piece of the Sky is a short ethnographic film that explores the experiences of female pilots. Despite the presence of women in the early days, aviation has persistently remained a highly gendered and male-dominated field. Our Piece of the Sky explores the journeys of five pilots through reflective and reflexive interviews that offer insight into the reality of gendered experience that permeates and influences everyday life. The film touches on phenomenology and perception through an examination of the influences of gender and subjective perceptions of experience. Through a diversity of pilot's stories, Our Piece of the Sky demonstrates the need for deeper consideration of the subjective embodied experiences of individuals within a culture.
