violence

There are scenes of strong violence, including a man yanking on a woman's bloody umbilical chord shortly after she has given birth. There are also scenes of domestic abuse, in which a wife is physically and verbally mistreated by her husband.

discrimination

Racism is a theme running throughout the film, with scenes tracing back to the American South in the 1800s. Some scenes depict racist violence, including sequences in which Black men and women are chained to a post and whipped. There is also use of racist language (e.g. a white man refers to a Black man as 'boy').


There is moderate bad language ('bitch'). There are also infrequent scenes containing brief sexualised breast and buttock nudity.
