Synopsis:
Free-spirited Amina has broken all the rules of her own conventional Indian community, and the new apartheid-led government, by running a cafe with Jacob her 'coloured1 business partner. When she meets Miriam, a young traditional wife and mother, their unexpected attraction pushes Miriam to question the rules that bind her. When Amina helps Miriam's 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, colourful world that is universal in its themes.

Sadly more rubbish from this director - The World Unseen review by EP

Spoiler Alert
11/05/2016

I am sad to say that this film seemed to have learnt nothing from the first. The actors were the same, the dialogue stilted and poorly written, I could see it was going to be as ridiculous and badly made as her first film. It is sad because I want lesbian directors to make good films, but this one doesn't.
