Nthabiseng Mosieane

A well-told love story between three men, even just the trailer for Inxeba shook the senses and set social media ablaze for daring to expose the history and secrecy of a traditional rite of passage.

With a successful international run and festival awards, the African premiere finally happened at the Durban International Film Festival.

With its tackling of culturally sensitive material and its focus on levels of masculinity I am uncertain that the film will be well received by the mass South African audience – they may feel their culture is being slightly trampled on. I know I did.

With its melodramatic ending, which made the whole thing slightly comical, this is a miss for me.
