The Wound

The Wound Release Date: August 16, 2017

Brimming with sex and violence, the movie The Wound is an exploration of tradition and sexuality set amid South Africa’s Xhosa culture.

Every year, the tribe’s young men are brought to the mountains of the Eastern Cape to participate in an ancient coming-of-age ritual.

Xolani, a quiet and sensitive factory worker (played by openly gay musician Nakhane Touré), is assigned to guide Kwanda, a city boy from Johannesburg sent by his father to be toughened up, through this rite of passage into manhood.
