Some brief overview of book

Film production in Sri Lanka is exceptionally prolific and diverse. Though Sri Lanka is a developing nation that has seen many years of internal conflict, it has produced many more films than most other Commonwealth nations.This is the first English language book to explore the vibrant but overlooked cinema of Sri Lanka. Written by two of the leading experts in the field, it takes a close look at individual films, while also explaining their wider contexts.

A range of relevant social, cultural, historical, and political issues are introduced, as key films are analysed in relation to regionalism and globalisation, gender, sexuality and gender, and postcolonialism. The Cinema of Sri Lanka is a fascinating book which fills a major gap in Asian film studies.
