Storyline

A photographer, Muholi is celebrating her exhibition in Johannesburg. Efficiently confrontational, the exhibition causes a stir and provokes an outcry on a subject that is particularly taboo: being black and, in this case, being lesbian. Forthright and beautifully shot, each monochrome photo captures the present reality of the photographer's subjects - the daily discomfort, double lives, abuse and hatred. Written by Anonymous

Photo's of naked women and dildoes.
29 August 2009 | by (nz) – See all my reviews

Controversial photographer Zanele Muholi, puts on a show of black lesbians, representations of the trials and tribulations they face -especially living in Johannasburg. Muholi quotes in the film (which she narrated) she wanted to share what it is like for lesbian in South Africa, "All around us they still persecute us, they still preach to us". One of the photographs in the collection was a woman who had been raped and beaten as the victim of a hate-crime only two days before. There were many pictures of female naked bodies with dildoes strapped to them and one of a sanitary pad on a plate, a knife and fork placed expectantly on either side. For a seven minute film it was more like a commentary on the art-show.
