Kenyan filmmaker Wanuri Kahiu’s second feature film has been getting a lot of attention. It tells the story of two young Kenyan women, Kena and Ziki. Despite the political rivalry between their families, the girls support each other to pursue their dreams in a conservative society. When love blossoms between them, they 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.
