----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------A tender love story between two young women in Nairobi and the pressures they face from their families and society at large. Initially banned by the country’s film classification board (homosexuality is illegal in Kenya), the film became a cinematic cause célèbre in Kenya and internationally and went on to win multiple awards.

Tickets can be purchased  in advance from The Exchange’s Box Office (in person or by telephone on 020 8240 2399) or online at (subject to a cap of 70).
