Nothing can stop you from falling in love...
“A sincere, beautifully realized vision of love and resistance in an intolerant world.” – AfterEllen.com
The beautiful Lisa Ray stars as Miriam, a doting wife and mother whose sudden attraction to the free-spirited Amina (Sheetal Sheth) throws her life choices into question. Their subsequent romantic involvement pushes the rules-that-bind and forces them both to face outrage and violent disapproval. Set against the back-drop of 1950s apartheid South Africa, this lush romantic drama showcases the stunning South African landscape and jazz tunes of the time to create a wonderfully atmospheric lesbian love story.
This debut feature from writer-director Shamim Sarif earned awards and acclaim on its release and continues to be one of the most popular lesbian romantic dramas of all time.
NOTE: If you enjoy The World Unseen, don't miss Shamim Sarif's other wonderful romantic lesbian drama — which also co-stars Lisa Ray and Sheetal Sheth — I Can't Think Straight. Here's the link: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/icantthinkstraight
