Although banned in its home country of Kenya, this love story between two teenage girls received a standing ovation at Cannes. RAFIKI is based on the short story by Ugandan author Monica Arac de Nyeko, and director Wanuri Kahiu brings the secret relationship between Kena and Ziki to life on the politically-charged streets of Nairobi. The chemistry between the two characters sparkles with tenderness in a love story which has never been told in this context before.
