Nominated for the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival, Black Venus tells the story of Saartjes Baartman who was displayed in carnivals around Europe in the 19th Century. After leaving South Africa in 1808 in search of fame and fortune, she follows her master, Casear, to London. However she soon finds herself trapped in a life of freak shows under the name “Hottentot Venus” – exhibiting her body throughout Europe as “the missing link”. This tragic story is beautifully captured by director Abdellatif Kechiche.
