The two films in this double feature are Difficult Love and Not a Man in Sight.

Difficult Love

QDoc provides a space for dialogue between film makers and audience, and strives to illuminate aspects of queer life for both LGBTQ and general audiences.

DIFFICULT LOVE:

Difficult Love portrays photographer Zanele Muholi, whose work explores the multilayered stories of black South African lesbians. Though South Africa’s 1996 constitution was the first in the world to outlaw discrimination against gays and lesbians, the legacy of apartheid and long-ingrained homophobia and sexism continue to create a challenging environment for black lesbians. Muholi’s breathtaking images document not only the hardships some lesbians face, but also capture the tenderness, love and beauty of her community. Her subjects, many of whom appear in the film, range from urban professionals and academics to a homeless lesbian couple living under a bridge.

NOT A MAN IN SIGHT:

Not a Man in Sight looks at three generations of lesbians in Norway. Director Mette Aakerholm Gardell and her wife, Stina, are wanting to have a child, which prompts Mette’s search for a new understanding of what “lesbian” means. Martine is 24 and wants to be seen as “just a normal masculine human being.” She feels like a heterosexual boy as she’s falling in love with a lesbian. Marja and Bodil, a couple both in their 70s, are from the first generation of lesbian/feminist activists, now dealing with aging and health issues together and dreaming of skinnydipping on Lesbos.
