News Brief

‘Inxeba (The Wound)’ is Back in Cinemas

The X rating has also been lifted.

The court has ruled that the South African movie Inxeba (The Wound) be shown in cinemas again with an 18 SNL rating. This means the X rating has been removed.


This was after the movie was banned from public cinemas last month by the FPB (Film and Publications Board), which classified it as an adult film with an 18 X rating and banned it from public cinemas. This didn't go down well with a lot of South Africans.

The Inxeba team took the matter to court.

The case has been postponed to March 28, but the movie will be showing in cinemas in the interim.
