Part of Film 2019
Directed by Wanuri Kahiu | 2018

With Samantha Mugatsia, Sheila Munyiva, Neville Misati

This Kenyan coming-of-age saga follows the journeys of Kena (Mugatsia) and Ziki (Munyiva), two fearlessly individualistic young women who, despite the fact that their fathers are rival political candidates, form a steadfast bond. When their friendship develops into romance, they must fight to protect their love in the face of societal prejudices determined to tear them apart. With a remarkable feeling for color, music, and the bustling street life of Nairobi, rising star director Wanuri Kahiu crafts an empowering, sublimely moving love story that defied censors in her home country and went on to become the first Kenyan film to premiere at Cannes.
