The film touches on issues of race-based science and social Darwinism, with the remains of indigenous people having been exported to Europe in aid of race-based pseudo-science, with special reference to the infamous case of Sarah Baartman.

    Hi Andreas,

    I was really looking forward to seeing this, but unfortunately, will not be able to attend the screening this week. Do you know if any other screenings will be shown in future? Or whether it would be possible to rent the DVD?

    • Hi Zinia

      The third film in the trilogy will be screened at the Labia on Thursday the 30th of October at 6.15pm – perhaps you can make it to the Labia then? All three DVDs will be for sale then again.

      Best,
      Andreas
