Maid in South Africa

Steven Cohen

2005, 12:00 minutes, colour, English


With a real political engagement, Steven Cohen questions about the body and its exploitation (referring to the prostitution, the exhausting manual work, relations between different communities...) and pays tribute to his South African 84 years old wet-nurse, who has been the home servant in his family since his childhood. (Extracted from the program of "Les Subsistances", Lyon, January 2005).
