Details

Kena and Ziki long for something more. Despite the political rivalry between their families, the girls resist and remain close friends, supporting each other to pursue their dreams in a conservative society. When love blossoms between them, the two girls will be forced to choose between happiness and safety. Inspired by Monica Arac de Nyeko's "Jambula Tree", which chronicles a story of two girls in love in Uganda, Rafiki challenges deep rooted cynicism about same sex relationships among actors, crew, friends, and family in Kenya.

Rafiki was banned in Kenya, illustrating the societal tensions that same sex relationships can engender. As such, Rafiki makes for an interesting companion piece to Disobedience, shown on Friday
