&feature=youtu.beBursting with the colorful street style & music of Nairobi’s vibrant youth culture, "Rafiki" is a tender love story between two young women in a country that still criminalizes homosexuality. Kena and Ziki have long been told that “good Kenyan girls become good Kenyan wives” - but they yearn for something more. Despite the political rivalry between their families, the girls encourage each other to pursue their dreams in a conservative society. When love blossoms between them, Kena and Ziki must choose between happiness and safety.Initially banned in Kenya for its positive portrayal of queer romance, "Rafiki" won a landmark supreme court case chipping away at Kenyan anti-LGBT legislation. Featuring remarkable performances by newcomers Samantha Mugatsia and Sheila Munyiva, "Rafiki" is a hip tale of first love “reminiscent of the early work of Spike Lee” (Screen Daily) that’s “impossible not to celebrate” (Variety)Dir. Wanuri Kahiu, 2018, Kenya/South Africa/Germany/Netherlands/France/Norway and Lebanon (In English & Swahili w/Eng subtitles), 83 min, DCP
