Zanele Muholi | Interview
Artist and activist Zanele Muholi discusses her documentary Difficult Love (2011) and her aim to disrupt the victimising discourse around black lesbians in South Africa. While she affirms the continued importance of speaking about hate crime and ‘corrective/curative’ rape, her film gestures towards a more capacious conversation, one that makes it possible to apprehend ’black lesbians and their families, black lesbians and their children, black lesbians and education, black lesbians taking over the movement … using the art as their means.’
Difficult Love is a magnificent film. Watch it here.
