The Wound 15

Fri 18 – Mon 21 May


Lonely factory worker Xolani travels to the rural mountains with the men of his community for the Xhosa ritual of Ulwaluko: initiating a group of teenage boys into manhood.

When the boy he is mentoring discovers his best-kept secret, Xolani's entire existence begins to unravel. A startling and bold tale of repressed sexuality set against the stunning landscape of the Eastern Cape in South Africa, The Wound is a moving look at one man’s struggles against a prejudiced society.

Dir: John Trengrove
