THE WOUND (CERT 15)
Tue, 6 Aug 2019
Confined to a camp in the mountains of the Eastern Cape, teenage boys undergo Ukwaluka, an initiation ritual which is a rite of passage. Factory worker Xolani, played by openly gay South African singer/songwriter Nakhane Touré, returns to the camp for the annual ritual and reconnects with his childhood friend. When he is chosen to mentor a confident young man, suspicions are raised about Xolani’s sexuality which could have devastating consequences. As the characters deny and suppress who they are and who they love, violence and frustration are unleashed.
