I Too Have A Name
A Tamil woman, living with the memory of pain, goes about her daily existence as a nun in the ravaged northeast of Sri Lanka at a time when her country is slipping in and out of war. Events brought to life by the church’s servant girl and its priest move her to reconcile her past and redirect her future with a desire to live and re-learn intimacy, sexuality and freedom. As the world around her continues to be made and unmade by violence, she moves slowly to carve out a small space to breathe and to find power and meaning in her life.
House of My Fathers
Two Sri Lankan villages – one Tamil, one Sinhala – have been at war with each other for decades. When, on both sides, villagers become infertile, they receive a message from the gods. A Sinhala man and a Tamil woman are to be sent to an isolated place where they will find the secret to renew life. But only one of them will return. In the Forest of the Dead, Asoka and Ahalya will have to confront the secrets of their villages and their personal pasts.
