Starring: Charlie Karumi, Dennis Musoyka, Jimmy Gathu
Screening as part of HeadFest 22, we are delighted to present the groundbreaking queer love story, Rafiki, followed by a session with The Lowdown!
Wanuri Kahiu‘s beautiful film Rafiki follows two young women as the fall in love in modern day Kenya, where homosexuality remains illegal.
And on top of the hostile environment their relationship faces, Kena and Ziki must contend with a ‘Romeo and Juliet’ inspired twist, as their fathers are political opponents.
However, their magnetic pull is undeniable, and seemingly nothing will keep these two apart.
