Anant Singh's Distant Horizon has picked up world rights to Promised Land, the directorial debut of Jason Xenopolous.

The South African film is a drama about one man's journey to find truth and a nation's struggle to hide it. It stars Nick Boraine, Yvonne van den Bergh, Daniel Browde and Ian Roberts. It was produced by Film Afrika's David Wicht and Khulisa Productions' Moyneen Lee.

'The film represents a new breed of talent that is emerging in South Africa and we are committed to supporting those talents and create a global profile for their films,' said Singh.
