Nakhane Touré stars in The Wound.

SA films continue to make an explosion overseas, with another flick set for an international debut at a popular foreign film festival.

It was announced this week that local film The Wound, will get its world premiere at the Sundance Film festival to be held next month.

The film, starring Nakhane Touré, depicts a story of Kwanda, a gay teenager, who travels from the city to a rural area of his family's origin to be circumcised in a traditional rites-of-passage into manhood.

The film is directed by John Trengove, who has worked on a number of TV hits, including Hopeville.

A documentary by a French filmmaker about Winnie Madikizela Mandela will also be premiered at the festival.
