Film Details

Cleveland premiere!


South Africa | 2017 | John Trengove


This acclaimed, inflammatory film, which some have hailed as the African Moonlight, breaks two taboos. First, it shows the traditional, heretofore secret, South African initiation rite of “ulwaluko,” during which Xhosa teen boys undergo circumcision as part of a journey to manhood. Secondly, it interjects homosexuality into this much revered rite of passage with a story about a reluctant gay initiate and two older, already circumcized closeted gays who accompany the boys as “caregivers” on their retreat. “A troubling portrait of the collision between communal and personal identity.” –Hollywood Reporter. Subtitltes. DCP. 88 min.
