Description: RAFIKI is a beautiful, award-winning film about two bright, young Kenyan women who fall in love for the first time. Screened at the Cannes Film Festival and receiving international  acclaim, RAFIKI is still banned in Kenya by government censors because of its positive portrayal of lesbians.
