A MANGO TREE IN THE FRONT YARD

This film was inspired by the dreams of a generation that have been dashed
by the barbaric oppression of the Sri Lankan government and a 25-year-old
struggle for liberation, the aims of which have evolved into a disguised
form of fascism. “In just a few spare images, Raveendran Pradeepan manages
to provide an oppressive account of this bleak situation.” (Maike Mia
Höhne)
