Screening with The Godfather, Hasaki Ya Suda, Kengere, and Umkhungo
At Nairobi’s iconic central station, a lithe, majestic drag queen sits on a bench, lightly crying, smoking a cigarette and descending into a breakdown through a poetic soliloquy. In just 8 minutes, filmmaker Amirah Tajdin challenges our ideas about beauty, sexuality, and Kenyan attitudes to ‘otherness’ in a film that suggests being caught between two places might in fact be no bad thing.
