“In Kenya, where homosexuality is a crime, two teenage girls fall giddily in love. Daughters of male politicians running against each other, their friendship – Rafiki means friend – faces obstacles from the start. Director Kahiu has a keen eye for Nairobi’s vibrant street life, and her handling of the burgeoning relationship feels sincere and natural. A breath of fresh energy that makes an important cultural statement, this simply told story is buoyed by a sizzling soundtrack of Kenyan pop.” - Paul Ennis, Now Magazine.
