There Is Power In The Collar
Synopsis

As Botswana awaits a possible landmark judgement from its high court, seeking to decriminalize same sex relations, Chantel, a 27-year-old lesbian who's both a theologian and a queer rights activist, attempts to start her journey to get ordained as a reverend in Botswana's religiously conservative and homophobic society.

I Am Samuel
Synopsis

Samuel grew up in the Kenyan countryside, where tradition is valued above all else. He is close to his mother but his father, a local pastor, doesn’t understand why he isn’t married yet. After moving to Kenya's capital in search of work and a new life, Samuel falls in love with Alex and finds community and belonging. Their love thrives despite the fact that Kenyan laws criminalize anyone who identifies as LGBTQ+. Despite threats of violence and rejection, Samuel and Alex move between their co-existing worlds, hoping to win acceptance in both.

Lesbians Free Everyone

Best Friends Forever
Synopsis

BFF examines the interpersonal issues that arise when sexuality is an issue. “BFF” stands for “best friend forever”, and the film contrasts the needs of friendship and those of a romantic partnership. It is the story of a young woman who invites her BFF around for dinner—the BFF not having seen her since she entered her present lesbian relationship. Much serious (and less serious) talk follows.
