A Letter of Fire

Tani tatuwen piyabanna (Flying with One Wing), an unknown film from Sri Lanka, was released two years ago in Zabaltegi, causing a strong impact on the audience, going on to win numerous awards at different festivals. Its director, Asoka Handagama, has once again chosen San Sebastian for the world premiere of his new work, more sophisticated and with more production means than his former, but equally corrosive and provocative. A powerful melodrama by an unclassifiable moviemaker.
BIOGRAPHY
Born in inland Sri Lanka in 1962, he entered the world of filmmaking via theatre and television. His most outstanding theatre works are Bhoomika and Magatha, both committed to the political situation in his country. In television, Dunhidda Addara established a historical landmark with its popular repercussion. He made his movie debut with Moon Lady (1994), followed by Moon Hunt (1996), This Is My Moon (2000) and Flying with One Wing (2002), presented in Zabaltegi at San Sebastian that same year.
