Our International Film Series has gone virtual! No matter where you are, join the Office of International Affairs for a virtual monthly screening of international films for free.

Films will be screened every third Thursday of the month.

On Thursday, July 15 at 7 p.m. EDT, we will stream the Kenyan drama, Rafiki.

Rafiki is the story of romance that grows between two young women, Kena and Ziki, amidst family and political pressures around LGBT rights in Kenya.

We will watch the film simultaneously through Discord, a free service that will allow us to watch the film together and participate in live discussions. You will create a Discord account ahead of time, then follow the prompts to join the Stream Room for a video chat before and after the film. You can access Discord at
