To commemorate 60 years of diplomatic relations between India and Sri Lanka, the Hyderabad Film Club, in collaboration with the High Commission of Sri Lanka, New Delhi, is presenting 60 Years Of Sri Lankan Cinema, from 14th to 22nd June, at the Sarathi Studios Preview Theatre, Ameerpet. 9 award-winning Sri Lankan films will be screened during the 9-day festival.

As part of this, The Garden (Sakman Maluwa) will be screened on the last day today. The film is directed by Sumitra Peries, and has Sanath Gunathilake, Kanchana Mendis, Iranganie Serasinghe, Vasanthi Chathurani, Rangana Premaratne, Daya Tennekoon and Dinidu Jagoda playing the lead roles.

The Garden depicts sensitively a marital relationship in which a surface contentment masks the essential separateness of the partners. Tissa and Prema are relatives and significantly differ in age. The Garden, which is one of Tissa's keen preoccupations, is the setting of the drama to follow. Ranjan, Tissa's younger brother, arrives for a brief holiday from Russia, where he is a medical student. Prema's and Ranjan's closeness to each other begins to disrupt the relationship between husband and wife. Meanwhile, a snake enters the garden and provides the startling climax to the film.

The film won the Sarasaviya award for the Best Film in 2003.

The entry is free for everyone. Please contact Bh S S Prakash Reddy Of The Hyderabad Film Club, at 2373-0841/93910-20243 for further details.
