Enraged by a Picture

Enraged by a Picture
South Africa 2004 15min
Dir: Zanele Muholi

A photographer, Muholi is celebrating her exhibition in Johannesburg. Effi ciently 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. The photographs present a window into their world. This documentary explores that world’s reality.
