A Knee That Can Bend
4 W / 90 minutes
American sociology student Kate stumbles into an underground circle of queers in Sénégal, transforming her semester abroad. What she learns from Aicha, Néné, and their friends could get her into grad school. That is, if she can convince them to consent to being studied.
Named one of the season's "most thought-provoking and emotionally gripping works" by Philadelphia Magazine, A Knee That Can Bend takes on the ethical sand-traps of Americans telling African stories, falling in love far from home, and searching for people like you in a country that doesn’t believe you exist.
