Juliet and Juliet

RAFIKI is love story between two young women, set in modern-day Kenya where homosexuality is forbidden by law. Despite this – and despite being from opposite sides of the tracks and daughters of competing local politicians – Kena and Ziki are adamant to live their lives together. However, the law is far from the only thing keeping them apart. Banned in Kenya, Wanuri Kahiu’s sophomore feature is a charming and urgent love story about two brave women whose hearts refuse to bow to society’s norms. With beautiful colours and compositions, RAFIKI tells a universal story in an urban African setting which is rare to experience at Norwegian cinemas.
