The liberal ideals that chafe against working-class realities in post-apartheid South Africa are deftly captured in WHILE YOU WEREN’T LOOKING. Affluent mixed-race lesbian couple Dez and Terri struggle to keep their relationship fresh while reining in their rebellious teenage daughter, Asanda. When Asanda meets and begins to fall for Shado, a gender-nonconforming “tommy boy” from the Khayelitsha township on the edge of Cape Town, she quickly learns they’re from vastly different worlds. Driven by an urgent pace and a pulsating soundtrack, this drama about class, infidelity, and identity will have you wondering, what do you miss when you’re not looking?

 

Contains adult themes, language, nudity, sexuality and violence.

Co-presented by the Northwest Film Forum and Gay City Health Project.
