Xolani, a lonely factory worker, joins the men of his community at a camp in the mountains of South Africa's Eastern Cape to initiate a group of teenage boys into manhood with an annual Xhosa ritual. When a defiant young initiate from the city casts suspicion on Xolani's sexuality, his entire existence begins to unravel. A dark, stirring and visually breathtaking variation on the coming-of-age narrative. THE WOUND will be released in the UK in April 2018.
