“Good Kenyan girls become good Kenyan wives”, but Kena and Ziki long for something more. When love blossoms between them, the two girls will be forced to 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.
“At home, where homosexuality remains a criminal offense, “Rafiki” has been slapped with a ban for its positive representation — a state of affairs that makes this lively, brightly performed film impossible not to celebrate….” – Variety
“From its opening frames, Rafiki is bursting with life.” – AV Club
“This is a story that may have been told before, sure, but never in this context before. That alone seems worth celebrating.” – The Guardian
“Lively and full of vision.” – Vulture
