The complex political and racial climate of South Africa is beautifully encapsulated in WHILE YOU WEREN'T LOOKING, a drama depicting the tension between liberal bourgeois ideals and working-class realities. Affluent mixed-race lesbian couple Dez and Terri struggle to maintain their own desires and ambitions while reining in the rebellious instincts of their beautiful teenage daughter.
As their daughter falls for a girl from a different background, Dez and Terri must also cope with their own hypocrisies and secrets, which threaten to unravel the seemingly perfect world they've crafted. DIRECTOR BIO
