“Good Kenyan girls become good Kenyan wives,” but Kena and Ziki long for something more. Despite the political rivalry between their families, the girls resist, when love blossoms between them, the two girls will be forced to choose between happiness and safety. A vibrant film buzzing with the kinetic chemistry between its two leads.
Despite being banned in Kenya for its bold approach to LGBTQ+ representation, Rafiki was the first Kenyan film to be screened in competition at Cannes film festival - where it received a lengthy standing ovation.
