Militarians for Sexual and Reproductive Rights!

The teams of the Antenne Jeune Sorbonne and Ciném'attack are pleased to invite you to their first screening-debate this year as we have been doing for a few years now. This partnership is an opportunity to reflect on human rights issues through film support.

This screening will focus on the LGBTI theme of sexual and reproductive rights in Kenya with Wanuri Kahiu's Rafiki. This is the first Kenyan film to be selected at the Cannes Film Festival. This film is inspired by the book Jambula Tree, written by Monica Arac of Nyeko and awarded the 2007 Caine Award.

The film takes place in Nairobi, where Kena and Ziki lead two lives of very different high school girls, but each seek in their own way to pursue their dreams. Their paths intersect in the midst of an election campaign during which their respective fathers clash. Attracted to each other in a conservative Kenyan society, the two young women will face severe social repression.

The screening will be followed by a debate with two LGBTI specialists, including one from Amnesty International France.

Come Many!
