SQIFF18
Sidney & Friends

Thu 6 December 2018

A heartfelt exploration of the hopes, dreams, and everyday reality of a group of intersex and transgender friends fighting to survive on the edge of Kenyan society. Join Sidney and his new friends as they share what it is like to grow up and live as a gender minority in a region known for prejudice and discrimination against its LGBTI population. Filmed over three years, the protagonists reveal the secrets of their struggles with poignancy and sometimes also humour. The premise is simple; it’s about gender, friendship…and love.

Film in English and Swahili languages with English language subtitles/captions. Hearing loop available. Film relies on visual material to convey ideas and non-English language, so less accessible for blind and partially sighted audiences.

Large print versions of handouts available.

Comfy seating (bean bags) available. If you would like to reserve this, please contact access@sqiff.org.

We have a limited travel fund to assist people to come to the Festival for those who could not otherwise afford to attend. If you would like to apply for this, please contact access@sqiff.org.
