Kapana is titled after grilled meat sold on the streets of Namibia. This charming romance is the first gay love story on film from Namibia, and tells the story of George, an openly gay office worker, and Simeon, a closeted kapana vendor. The men meet in a bar, flirt, and hook up.

Both have differing views on being gay in a country with strict anti-gay laws. Simeon believes that his casual same-sex encounters do not make him gay. George, on the other hand, longs for something more than a one-night stand. Despite these differences, they start seeing each other, but it isn’t long before deep secrets put the men’s budding romance to the test. Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind love story that will give festival audiences a taste of queer life in Namibia.
