Sarah Baartman: The Movie

‘Black Venus’ poster (Wikipedia)

I had to share the trailer for the movie on Sarah Baartman, Black Venus, which starred Yahima Torres and was released in 2010. The film was nominated for the Golden Lion at the 67th Venice International Film Festival, where [for what it is worth] it was awarded the Equal Opportunity Award. Here are articles from the BBC about Sarah Baartman The significance of Sarah Baartman, SA History – Sarah Baartman, and this article by Brand South Africa. As stated in this New York Times article, “[the story of Sarah Baartman] is “a symbol of the alienation and degradation of colonization, lost children, exile, the expropriation of female labor and the sexual and economic exploitation of black women by men, white and black.”

    • You should look for “Venus Noire” or “Black Venus” and you will find it.
