    In and Out of Focus is a documentary about women in the film business and how they balance children, love lives and career—or how they don't. When a female filmmaker discovers she is unexpectedly pregnant, her life is turned upside down, as she struggles to balance family and career. Filmed over a period of five years, the story evolves from a personal journey into an exploration of female filmmakers in general. The video features interviews with some of the most successful women in the film industry, including, among others, directors Mimi Leder (Deep Impact) and Claudia Weill (Girlfriends); producers Gail Katz (The Perfect Storm) and Jana Sue Memel (So I Married an Axe Murderer); screenwriter Diane Fine (Man on a Wire) and Anne Coates, editor of numerous films, from Lawrence of Arabia to Erin Brockovich. The resulting tapestry of personal stories illustrates the delicate balance that many modern women are forced to consider, no matter what choices they make.
