Rafiki

Presented by TOM’s Film Club

Inspired by Ugandan Author Monica Arac de Nyeko’s 2007 Caine Prize-winning short story Jambula Tree, Wanuri Kahiu’s acclaimed Rafiki (meaning ‘friend’ in Swahili) is a tender love story about the blossoming romance between two young women amid familial, societal and political pressures.

In Nairobi, Kena (Samantha Mugatsia) is helping her father campaign for a local election when she meets and befriends Ziki (Sheila Munyiva), the daughter of his rival. As their relationship deepens, so too do the stakes, forcing them to choose between openness and secrecy, happiness and safety.
