    A documentary about a Kenyan man balancing family duties, and his own hopes and dreams. 

    Filmed over five years, “I am Samuel” is an intimate portrait of a queer Kenyan man torn between balancing duty to his family with his dreams for his future, in a country where his love is criminalised.

    This screening will be followed by a discussion with director Pete Murimi and other special guests.
