In the pressure cooker of apartheid south africa, free-spirited amina meets miriam, a traditional wife and mother, and their unexpected attraction is met by outrage and violent disapproval.
Editor's Note
In this drama set in 1950s South Africa, two women find love in surprising places. Lisa Ray (WATER) stars as Miriam, a married mother, while Sheetal Sheth (AMERICAN CHAI) plays Amina, a progressive owner of a café. Though the women appear to have little in common, they are instantly drawn to one another, and a forbidden affair begins. THE WORLD UNSEEN is a stirring film that addresses issues of race, gender, and desire. Shamin Sarif directs this adaptation of her own novel.

Professional Reviews

Los Angeles Times
"Drawing upon her own heritage as a descendant of South Africa's large Indian community, Sarif brings more than a dozen interconnected characters to life....Sarif is a deft enough storyteller to give THE WORLD UNSEEN an open ending that seems just right." 11/07/2008
