The movie has received a backlash from audiences on social media and the AmaXhosa king, Mpendulo Zwelonke Sigcawu, has instructed his lawyers to file an interdict against the screening of the film.
The movie had a screening in East London last week, but the film's producer Cait Pansegrouw said to her knowledge the king has not seen the film.
“From what I am aware of he has not seen it. He was not at the screening we had in East London. It is unfortunate that the discourse is being led by those that have not seen it and is being judged by its two-minute trailer,” she said.
The film tells the story of a caregiver during a Xhosa male initiation ceremony who becomes romantically involved with another caregiver and explores themes of tradition, sexuality and masculinity.
