Regent Park Film Fest’s closing movie is an amazing queer movie from South Africa!

“The 16th Annual Regent Park Film Festival comes to a close with a screening of Rafiki (alongside the short Continuum) and an awards ceremony.

CONTINUUM
Dir. Noncedo Khumalo | Experimental | Canada | 2016
In the loneliness of a colorful space that floats gently, yet lacks the true concept of time, two of society's rejects find one another.

RAFIKI
Dir. Wanuri Kahiu | Drama | Kenya, South Africa, Germany, Netherlands, France, Norway, Lebanon | 2018
"Good Kenyan girls become good Kenyan wives," but Kena and Ziki long for something more. Despite the political rivalry between their families, the girls resist and remain close friends, supporting each other to pursue their dreams in a conservative society. When love blossoms between them, the two girls will be forced to choose between happiness and safety.
