The World Unseen
Shamim Sarif, UK/South Africa, 2008, 94 min)

In this moving and passionate love story set in 1950s South Africa, free-spirited Amina (Sheetal Sheth) has broken all the rules of her own conventional Indian community, and the new apartheid-led government, by running a caf with Jacob, her 'colored' business partner. When she meets Miriam (Lisa Ray), a young traditional wife and mother, their unexpected attraction pushes Miriam to question the rules that bind her. As Amina helps Miriams sister-in-law to hide from the police, a chain of events is set in motion that changes both women forever. In a system that divides white from black and women from men, what chance is there for an unexpected love to survive? From overcoming oppression to finding personal freedom, from the hardships of a loveless marriage to the hesitant joy of an unexpected love affair, "The World Unseen" transports the viewer to a vibrant, colorful world that is universal in its themes.

Preceded by The Touch (Jane Clark, USA, 2007, 8 min)
A story set in 1906 and based on a romance between Renee Vivien, a lesbian poet living in Paris and Kerime, a practicing Muslim woman and wife of a Turkish diplomat. The film structures their last moments together around Renees poem, The Touch as they meet in a Paris park
