|The Wound – Trailer
Brimming with sex and violence, The Wound is an exploration of tradition and sexuality set amid South Africaâ€™s Xhosa culture. Every year, the tribeâ€™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 TourÃ©), 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.
