ReelQ & Pittsburgh Black Pride Present
Stories of Our Lives
Friday, July 14th
In 2013, The Nest Collective (a Nairobi-based arts collective) began interviewing people identifying as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and intersex in Kenya. After collecting hundreds of stories, they wrote scripts for 5 of the most compelling and transformed them into Stories of Our Lives, an anthology of short films.
“Stories of Our Lives is both a labor of love and a bold act of militancy, defying the enforced silence of intolerance with tales rooted in the soil of lived experience.”
– Toronto International Film Festival
Stories of Our Lives was an Official Selection of the Berlin and Toronto Film Festivals, and was a winner of the Special Jury Award at the Berlin International Film Festival, among other notable accolades.
