OUT at TIFF: The World Unseen

A queer look at the 2007 Toronto Int. Film Fest

For one week in September the best and brightest of the motion picture industry converge for the Toronto International Film Festival. In collaboration with Xtra.ca and OUTtv, host Matt Thomas chased down the best of the queer stories from the 2007 festival. We’ll be releasing a new segment right here each week. Don’t miss any of them. And don’t forget to tune-in to OUTtv for the complete series and our special presentation coverage of the whole event, coming soon.



SYNOPSIS: Set in Cape Town, South Africa in 1952 at the dawn of apartheid. The beautiful Miriam (Lisa Ray) is married but when the free-thinking, unconventional Amina (Sheetal Sheth) sees her for the first time sparks fly. The eventual result is one of the hottest onscreen kisses of the year.

VIDEO: Matt Thomas caught up with director Shamim Sarif and actor Lisa Ray at the exclusive premiere afterparty.
