Politics from a Black Woman's Insides
Follow one woman's search for the Hottentot Venus, the legendary link between ape and human and icon of black female subjectivity. Edwards's film explores the construction of race through both scientific discourse on the body (as a body is graphically exposed for the camera by a forensic pathologist) and personal narratives by women who have struggled with the health care system.
