    Free Foreign Film: Rafiki

    A Cannes Film Festival selection and award-winning drama from Kenya by director Wanuri Kahiu, screening at the Chief Theater. Initially banned in Kenya for its positive portrayal of queer romance, Rafiki won a landmark supreme court case chipping away at Kenyan anti-LGBT legislation. Featuring remarkable performances by newcomers Samantha Mugatsia and Sheila Munyiva, Rafiki is a hip tale of first love “reminiscent of the early work of Spike Lee" (Screen Daily) that’s “impossible not to celebrate” (Variety)!

    Doors open at 6:30 and the film starts at 7 p.m. See the website under event details below for more information.
