Pretoria – The producers of the film, Inxeba (The Wound), will on Tuesday ask the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria to overturn its porn rating.

In a statement released by Mad Moth Communications, David Alex Wilson said the producers of the film, through their attorneys Webber Wentzel, filed an application on February 24 for an urgent interdict to overturn the reclassification of the film.

The Film and Publication Board Appeals Tribunal overturned the original classification of 16LS and gave the film a rating of X18, classifying the film in the same category as hardcore pornography, Wilson said.

The film, which is about a gay relationship set in the context of a Xhosa initiation ceremony, was pulled from cinemas after it was slapped with a X18 classification.
