Breaking Out Of The Box

Buhle Msibi's poem, I Break The Boxes, provides the title for this wide-ranging, touching, often funny documentary highlighting the lives of black lesbians in South Africa.

The title is appropriate; by telling the tales of six high profile women, the sheer breadth of experience in the black lesbian community is revealed, the profiled women all having redefined their set parameters in one way or another.

Produced for Forum for the Empowerment of Women by Left Hand Films, Fat Elvis Films and Fort Greene Filmworks. The filmĀ premiered at theĀ Out In Africa Film Festival in October 2011 in Cape Town & Johannesburg.
