Event description

Description

The documentary is based on an anthropological field research study undertaken in Pungudutivu, located in Jaffna peninsula, northern Sri Lanka, by Thanges Paramsothy, a doctoral research student from the University of East London, United Kingdom.

This documentary brings to the forefront the land-related issues, which the people of Pungudutivu currently face consequent to the internal and external displacements brought about in the wake of the armed conflict that lasted three decades. This also brings into focus some problematic issues routinely encountered by the inhabitants in relation to their residence, water problems, agriculture, safety and security, casteism etc.

The screening will be followed by a Skype Q&A and discussion with the filmmaker.

The event is PWYC at the door. Please register, as refreshments will be served and we need to confirm numbers.
