THE FROZEN FIRE|| OSCAR
Directed by : Anuruddha Jayasinghe

A group of prisoners are released in November 1977 after six years of incarceration. They were among the leaders arrested, put on trial and condemned to life imprisonment for their role in the failed insurrection in April 1971. The rebels, led by Rohana Wijeweera, decide to enter mainstream politics. In 1982 Wijeweera, the candidate of the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna secures some 300,000 votes at the Presidential Election. It is a small number but big enough to create consternation in political circles. Ethnic riots in 1983 provide a convenient excuse for the government to pin the blame on the JVP. Wijeweera and the party go underground. From then until the final denouement in November 1989 it is a dangerous and bloody game of hide-and-seek.
Wijeweera and some of the leaders flee to the Southern jungles. When bad weather and other factors push them out, they move from place to place even as they do their extensive and intense political work and balance their personal lives.
Wijeweera and his family first take refuge in a doctor’s official residence. His cover is eventually blown, but the humanity of those around him prevails over the fear of reprisals and unnecessary trouble with authorities out for his head. ­Things take a turn for the worse following the signing of the Indo-Lanka Accord in 1987 plunging the country into political uncertainty. The search for Wijeweera intensifies as the insurrection gathers momentum.
Through it all Wijeweera as well as his comrades have to contend with their personal demons, the mismatches between theory and practice, rhetoric and personal choices. Wijeweera is finally apprehended in a situation where the security forces gradually overpower the rebels. Logistical issues as well as a series of betrayals seal his fate. He is captured and made to suffer a terrible death. All the key leaders are either killed or captured. A particularly bloody chapter in the country’s history is officially brought to a close leaving behind an image of a rebel abstracted from who he was and reduced to a political persona to be celebrated or vilified.

BALLAD OF RUSTOM || OSCAR
Directed by : Ajita Suchitraveera

Ballad of Rustom Is about this young Imaginative man called Rustom who works in a remote government office as a Telephone Linesman. Rustom’s mundane life In the small town, his adventures meeting people on his visits, his Imaginary world in the small countryside township, his yearning for the love of a young painter, and his wanderings with his friend Kapil all form ‘Ballad of Rustom’.

The movie beautifully portrays the life of those people who lives in that country side. It contains different episodes of Rustom’s journeys, which alternate between his real and Imaginary worlds.Ballad of Rustom

HOU DE JARASA USHIR || OSCAR & FILM FESTIVAL
Directed by Wasim Maner

Hou de jarasa ushir (Let There Be A Little Delay) is the story of three people — Sunayna, Malhar, and Shantanu — who work in the same software company. Each one of them is fighting a lonely battle trying to balance work and life.
Every morning, they travel to work together in Shabbir’s cab. One day, a very crucial day in their career, Shabbir does not arrive on time, and when he does, their cab is stuck in a major traffic jam on the highway. The already irate and anxious passengers decide to let Shabbir try an alternate route to the IT Park that will take them through remote villages. But almost as soon as they break from routine and start on this journey, a series of life-altering incidents (and a fakir who challenges them to take time in their own hands), inspires them to change their perspective of life itself.

CHAYILYAM || FILM FESTIVAL
Directed by Manoj Kana

A major ritual of North Malabar, Kerala, India, Theyyam is enjoyed with reverence by the people as Gods and Goddesses appear before them through this art form. In most cases, Goddesses are represented, but the performers are men. Against this tradition, only one Goddess is performed by women performers. This cinema, set against the background of Theyyam, is presenting the struggle of a woman to regain the boon of femininity.
In the traditional society with its joint family system, first menstruation was taken as an event of celebration and recognition. But the contemporary society hides it as a matter of secrecy.
‘Chayiliam’ is an attempt to suggest how far menstruation is important for women through the character Gouri.
It also takes into consideration the event of her premature menopause, which totally unsets the rhythm of Gouri’s life.
