Join us to mark 50 years of FESPACO, Africa’s own Film festival, with this preview. Included in the Un Certain Regard section in Cannes and then controversially banned from being shown in Kenya by the Kenya Film Classification Board (the ban was later retracted), Rafiki is a stylish and youthful depiction of young love between two women from politically opposed families, in a country where such a choice is a punishable offence.
