Rafiki is the story of Kena and Ziki, two very different girls living in a Nairobi housing estate. When they fall in love, they must choose between love and safety against a backdrop of insular gossip, local politics, and burgeoning maturity. The film is set for a commercial release in the United States in April and so the audience is limited to 100 people. Free tickets can be reserved here. Admission will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
A talk-back with filmmaker Wanuri Kahiu, moderated by Professor Moya Bailey (CSGS, WGSS), will immediately follow the film at 6:15 pm.
This event is part of the Women Take the Reel Film Festival.
