THE WOUND (Inxeba)

The Wound

General Admission:  First come, First served seating

John Trengrove, 2017, South Africa, 88 mins

Powerful story-telling mixed with rich and delicate portrayals by the lead actors offer a glimpse of a society that few know much about about. Xolani works in a factory but returns every year to the mountain to act as caregiver to new initiates into manhood in rural South Africa. His initiate this year is Kwanda, a rich kid from the city who has no interest in the rituals of the past. Xolani’s annual trip serves another purpose, to reunite him with a lover, Vija. Their secret affair has been going on for years, but Xolani’s feelings transcend their once-a-year encounters. Kwanda begins to suspect there is more than friendship between them, and encourages Xolani to forget Vija and move to the city where he can be his true self. Modernity collides with tradition causing Xolani to make a heart-wrenching decision. In Xhosa with English subtitles. (DG)
