Rafiki

Sweet and engaging tale of two Kenyan girls, Kena and Ziki, living very different lives in Nairobi.

Kena works in her father's shop and plans to start nursing school, while Ziki hangs out with her friends making up dance routines. Their paths cross when their fathers compete for seats in the County Assembly.

Soon their friendship grows to romance, but they face prejudice and ignorance in a country where LGBT relationships are still illegal.

Dir:Wanuri Kahiu. Cert 12A. In English. 83mins
