  • The Hollywood Reporter
    "A fresh, warm, visually ravishing look at queer life in East Africa."
    Stephen Dalton
  • Huffington Post
    "Stories of Our Lives is a gorgeously constructed tone-poem that taps into something deeply universal: the desire to belong, the impulse to feel wanted and needed and free. One of the most triumphant and stunning films of the year."
    Diriye Osman
