Rafiki at the Loft Cinema. The Loft Film Fest is here, so it's an excuse to see as many movies as possible. Rafiki, a film in competition for the Cicae Award, is a romantic story between two women in a society that bans homosexuality. Even though this film has been banned in Kenya, the African culture shines proud throughout this movie and the director wants it to be an example of what the African film world should look like. She describes its as "Afrobubblegum" which means, fun, fierce, and frivolous African Art. See this film at The Loft at 3 p.m. Details Here.

At their annual fall presentation, you’ll see athleticism and artistry at their finest in the Stevie Eller Dance Theatre.
