+ pre-recorded interview with Sumitra Peries
Perceptive and intricate insight into the world of a shy Sri Lankan teen.
Sri Lanka 1978
Dir Sumira Peries
With Vasanthi Chathurani, Ajith Jinadasa, Jenita Samaraweera, Shayama Ananda
Sumitra Peries made some of the most beautiful films in world cinema. Here we meet a shy girl in her teens; we see her religious and home environments; her attraction to a lad... Peries uses bold zooms, a restless camera and lovely lattices in front of the camera to make a film as intricate as a spider’s web.
