Zoom into the Movies--Rafiki: Online Event

Thursday, September 17, 2020
8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Chris, Sharon, and Mimosa discuss this story that delves into the lives of Kena and Ziki, two young women living in Nairobi who pursue their dreams and find that they have a lot in common.

Initially banned in Kenya for its positive portrayal of a queer romance, Rafiki was part of a landmark decision to screen it for wider audiences in 2019. Starring Samantha Mugatsia and Sheila Munyiva, this film is in English and Swahili, with English subtitles. Watch the film via the library's free streaming services on either Hoopla or Kanopy, and then join us with your questions and comments.
