Odyssey Film Club: Rafiki

  • Harris Academy South Norwood 2 Cumberlow Avenue London SE25 6AE (map)

Dir. Wanuri Kahiu • 2019 • Kenya • Drama • 82 mins • Cert 12A • English subtitles

Banned at home, and embraced by the world, join us on an odyssey this May to Kenya with a screening of the remarkably touching and vibrantly colourful Rafiki.

Kena and Ziki have always been told that good Kenyan girls become good Kenyan wives, but they both dream of lives that go beyond what their community expects of them. When the two fall in love, what begins as a tender story about finding your soulmate, quickly becomes a reminder of the criminality of homosexuality in Kenya.

Includes a post-film discussion and chance to try Kenyan snacks.
