BETWEEN TWO WORLDS (2009) [feature]

Sri Lanka/France (MIFF 2010 , Neighbourhood Watch)

β€œThe forces of history, of the past, the forces of nature… the forces of cinema, all come to a clash and to explode.” - filmmaker Vimukthi Jayasundara

Rajith falls from the sky to find himself in dangerous territory: a land gripped by an endless cycle of riots, fighting and death. Dodging bullets from unknown assailants and evading indiscriminate brutality, he undertakes a journey across the land. He's caught in limbo - a war rages around him, but he's neither part of it nor safe from it.

A jagged collection of moments knit together to depict a Sri Lanka torn apart by strife and violence, in this breathtaking, impressionistic tapestry from filmmaker Vimukthi Jayasundara (The Forsaken Land).

β€œ[A] densely poetic work of great formal beauty.” - Screen International
