Kapana, a name referring to the preparation of meat over an open fire, provides the hot setting for two Namibian men, a kapana seller and an insurance broker, who meet and fall in love.
After a few brief encounters at the kapana stand, George and Simeon find themselves drawn to each other one night in a bar. Their undeniable chemistry feels like a match made in heaven, but George and Simeon must keep their desire private for fear of persecution. In Namibia, gay relationships are stigmatized, so George and Simeon’s budding romance is put to the test. Although they come from different backgrounds and each face pressure from their surroundings, George and Simeon know that their love is worth fighting for.
Kapana takes a familiar narrative and gives it new life in the first Namibian film featuring a gay love story, supported by breakout performances and a promising message for queer African rights.
