Available on iTunes, Arrow Video Channel, Tubi TV
Black Venus is the powerful true story of Saartjie Baartman, a South African woman who was brought to London by her master to be exploited as a sideshow attraction. Free and enslaved at the same time, the “Hottentot Venus” became an icon in the slums, eventually ending up in Paris as a sexual slave and the subject of dubious scientific study. Acclaimed director Abdellatif Kechiche (The Secret of the Grain) brings Baartman’s tragic yet unforgettable tale to life in this “supremely accomplished journey” (THE INDEPENDENT).
