Bereavement is seen through the eyes of a six-year-old girl in this assured, visually arresting debut from Catalan director Carla Simon.

After the death of her mother, Frida (an extraordinary performance from Laia Artigas) is dealing with grief she cannot process when she is packed off from her Barcelona home to live with her mother’s brother, his wife and their four-year-old daughter in Catalonia. However good intentions don’t always produce the desired result as Frida struggles to settle into a new family dynamic - and whilst she may be convinced that running away would be the best solution to her problems, she has to learn to cope with her emotions whilst her new parents, in turn, have to learn to love her as their own daughter.

A beautifully moving and nostalgic film, paralleling the director’s own childhood experience, this expertly crafted, distinctive tale is realised with a heartfelt sensitivity and a keen sense of visual poetry.

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.
