Kenyan film tells stories of LGBT lives
by Christopher Vourlias – THE SCRUTINEER – September 5, 2014
“A man arranges a sexual liaison with another man and sits in a hotel room, waiting for a knock on the door. Teenage girlfriends face an awkward reunion after being pulled apart by school officials. A woman and her female partner dream up an escape plan as angry mobs threaten to evict gays from their homes.
“These and other real-life stories, drawn from a collaborative project to document the lives of members of Kenya’s LGBT community, were the inspiration for “Stories Of Our Lives,” a collection of five fictional vignettes that will have its world premiere tonight at the Toronto International Film Festival.”
