The Wound

CHICAGO PREMIERE!

(INXEBA)
2017, John Trengove, South Africa, 88 min. With Nakhane Touré, Niza Jay

Short-listed for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar, this powerful first feature from South Africa centers on a traditional manhood ritual for young men of the Xhosa ethnic group that involves circumcision and a wilderness retreat under the supervision of older caregivers. One of the caregivers uses the yearly ritual as a cover for his closeted (and, in his homophobic culture, potentially dangerous) relationship with another man, and the danger grows when his secret is discovered by his new, rebellious initiate. In Xhosa with English subtitles. DCP digital.
