Dir. John Trengove, South Africa, Germany, Netherlands, France, 88 mins, 2017, Subtitled

A lonely factory worker joins the men of his community in the mountains of the Eastern Cape to initiate a group of teenage boys into manhood. When a defiant initiate from the city discovers his best-kept secret, Xolani’s entire existence begins to unravel.

The Wound is a visually breathtaking meditation on the wounds that exist on the surface and those deeper scars that never truly heal.
