Bursting with the music and colorful street style of Nairobi’s vibrant youth culture, Rafiki is a tender love story between two young women in a country that still criminalizes homosexuality. Kena (Samantha Mugatsia) and Ziki (Sheila Munyiva) 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. This award-winning tale of first love features remarkable performances by newcomers Mugatsia and Munyiva.
