Rafiki is the Swaheli word for “friend”. When I was little, I was extremely difficult to feed. “Sticky girl,” my mother would say. “Iki, iki,” quothe I, and the nickname held. So I have always been known as Iki and chose to name my company rafIki as a fun combination of my name and my roots.
Even though I refer to rafIki Film Productions, I think of Rafiki Productions as the umbrella title for all my creative work. Thus, on this website, you will find detailed information about my FILMS and BOOKS, as well as a special page dedicated to my featured film, BEAUTIFUL TREE, SEVERED ROOTS. See below for my upcoming project, HOLDING ONTO WATER. Most of all, though, it is the site from which I sell my films. So if you would like to purchase copies of any film, please follow the BUY A FILM! links on each page or go to the SHOP page where you’ll find order forms and all the information you need.
