Catherine Stewart’s feature debut takes a look at South Africa through the experiences of a cross section of queer relationships in Cape Town. The changing landscape of post-Apartheid South African politics and lifestyles is portrayed through two central relationships: a successful black real-estate agent who is cheating on her white wife; and their bohemian daughter, who’s dating a gender-nonconfirming woman in the Khayelitsha township. Beautifully shot on locations in and around Cape Town, with a stellar South African cast and a soundtrack of great local music, While You Weren’t Looking wrestles with the complexities of queerness and its overarching intricacies of class and fading relationships.
