SCR: Oliver Hermanus
The devastating effects of the closet are powerfully explored in this controversial and shocking film that won the Queer Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival and was the South African submission for the Oscars' Foreign Film category. Francois appears to have it all - a family, a thriving business and a secret house he visits for regular sex parties with other closeted men. But when he becomes fixated on his best friend's gorgeous grown son, his obsession leads to an unsettling act of violence.
