Afro Bubblegum Strand

“Good Kenyan girls become good Kenyan wives”, but Kena and Ziki want more. As love blossoms between them, the girls must choose between happiness and safety.

Brimming with Afropop aesthetics and the dreamy intimacy of first love, Wanuri Kahiu’s sophomore feature – now banned in its home country – made it into Cannes’ Un Certain Regard selection, and is a rallying indictment against Kenya’s homophobic laws.
