The debut feature film from South African filmmaker John Trengrove, The Wound deals with the traditional but taboo topic of the Xhosa initiation into manhood. The Wound is an examination of culture, masculinity and sexuality. The film has done well on the international film festival circuit and screened at the Melbourne International Film Festival earlier in the year, and is South Africa’s official entry for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscars for 2018. Ahead of its cinema release Greg spoke to director John Trengrove about the controversy surrounding the film, and some of the challenges of working with a cast of largely inexperienced actors.
