'While You Weren't Looking' reflects harsh realities of LGBT in SA

Africa Melane (standing in for Pippa Hudson) speaks to Nodi Murphy, Executive Producer of ‘While You Weren’t Looking’, a feature film released this year outlining the lives of the gay and lesbian in a contemporary South Africa.

While You Weren’t Looking is the first feature film produced by the Out in Africa Gay and Lesbian Film Festival.

Murphy says all the actors were amazing as it is not easy to act out as gay or lesbian given all the preconceptions and ill-treatment of gay people in South Africa.

Africa Melane also spoke to Sandi Schultz, one of the actors in the movie who says she is very proud to be involved in the film:

It’s an honest movie. It is true to various characters and situations. It is moving.

While You Weren’t Looking is screening at Cinema Nouveau in Durban Gateway, Pretoria Brooklyn, Johannesburg Rosebank, Cape Town V&A and SK Maponya Mall from 2 October.
