Muholi and Goldsmid’s lens provides intimate insight into the difficult lives and loves of lesbians in contemporary South Africa, one of the most homophobic nations on earth, despite gay rights being enshrined in its constitution. Two women live in a makeshift home under a bridge after being kicked out of a homeless shelter when it was discovered that they were lovers. Another woman is badly beaten for being lesbian. A black woman and a white woman speak of their passion for one another. Muholi, one of Africa’s leading photographers, guides us through this film that takes the pulse of contemporary gay identities in South Africa.
