Rafiki Release Date: April 19, 2019

In the movie Rafiki, Kena and Ziki long for something more. Despite the political rivalry between their families, the girls resist and remain close friends, supporting each other to pursue their dreams in a conservative society. When love blossoms between them, the two girls will be forced to choose between happiness and safety.

Inspried 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.
