Dominant 7, Mail & Guardian Television, France 3 and SABC 2. present ; a film by Zola Maseko ; produced by Philip Brooks and Harriet Gavshon ; directed by Zola Maseko
Format

Summary
A documentary of the life a Khoikhoi woman who was taken from South Africa in 1810 and exhibited as a freak across Britain. The image and ideas for "The Hottentot Venus" (particularly the interest in her sexual anatomy) swept through British popular culture. A court battle waged by abolitionists to free her from her exhibitors failed. In 1814, a year before her death, she was taken to France and became the object of scientific research that formed the bedrock of European ideas about black female sexuality.
