Kapgang

milkboys Films, Films & Cinema 22 Comments

In a quirky, small town, situated in the outskirts of everything, 14-year-old Martin is getting ready for one of the most formal transitions from boy to man; the communion. Its 1976, music is in the air, hormones are blossoming and Martin is trying get to terms with his confused sexuality. However, in the midst of it all, Martin’s mother suddenly passes away and her tragic death triggers a series of events that not only changes Martin’s life forever, but also affects everyone else in the local community.

There’s a proper trailer as well but sadly it conveniently leaves out the whole queer sub-plot… which didn’t save the film from the critics upset about sex scenes involving teenagers anyway though.
