The Forsaken Land

Sulanga Enu Pinisa

Directed by Vimukthi Jayasundara
Sri Lanka, 2005


Neither war nor peace, just the wind blowing. God is absent, but still the sun rises. Over a lonely home between two trees in a forsaken land. A hand emerges from the water, begging for help. A legendary woman searches for love. A soldier kills a stranger, and is burdened by guilt.
