Difficult Love by Zanele Muholi and Peter Goldsmid. African Women in Cinema Blog highlights African women via films online during the Directed by Women worldwide film viewing party - 1-15 September 2015.

Visual activist Zanele Muholi of South Africa, repositions the African subject that is often represented by others, reclaiming her own space and that of other black lesbians and black South Africans as a whole. Telling her own story and taking ownership of her subject-position, she returns the gaze, re-writes the script that has often left black lesbians and Africans in general without a voice.
