  3. In 1810 she was abducted by an Afrikaaner and was brought to London where she was put on display like a freak at pubs, fairs, museums, and universities because of the ‘unusual’ appearance of her buttocks. She would spend many hours every day on display in London where she was perversely called the Hottentot Venus. 
  4. A debate ensued around her case between the abolitionists of slavery and those who wanted to study her from a scientific point of view. When she died at the age of 25 her brain was removed and put in a jar, along with her genitals. Her skeleton and a plaster cast of her body remain on display at a Paris museum. 
  5. This powerful documentary is only the second film from this young South African filmmaker and heralds the emergence of an exceptionally talented filmmaker.
