Rafiki is the story of friendship and love that grows between two young women. This is in the midst of family and political pressure on LGBT rights in Kenya. Join our host Katie for network drinks after the movie!

“Good Kenyan girls become good Kenyan wives,” but Kena and Ziki have very different plans. Despite the political rivalry between their families, their friendship continues. They support each other in pursuing their dreams in a conservative world. When the love between the two girls blossoms, the girlfriends are faced with an almost impossible choice. Do they choose for their happiness or their safety?

Rafiki premiered in Cannes and the release was banned in conservative Kenya. After much action had been taken, people managed to show the film in the cinemas for a week.
