A photo exhibition causes a stir in Johannesburg, South Africa. The present reality of the photographer’s subjects are captured in photos, and then come out of the frames and into the film: the experiences of black lesbians in the Republic of South Africa, daily discomforts, suffering, double lives, and hatred. Zanele Muholi starts with her initial question, how can she break free of her discomfort with “showing.” Why does she have to show them through vision, the primary sense, and in frozen shots? An exhibition capturing the daily life of lesbians in South African society that is filled with racial, sexual discrimination provokes a small, but strong outcry. Through many of her exhibitions, Muholi is breaking the “Fascism in them.” (Sue Kim)
