Kenya has banned a new film by the celebrated Kenyan director Wanuri Kahiu saying it violates Kenyan law and morals. Her new film, "Rafiki," is a coming-of-age tale of two girls falling in love, inspired by an award-winning short story by a Ugandan author. In May, the film will become the first feature-length movie from Kenya ever to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival (May 8 – May 19). VOA’s Daniel Schearf met with Kahiu in Nairobi and has this report.
