Entertainment Reviews:

Los Angeles Times - 11/07/2008
"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."

Product Description:

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.
