SINHALESE / 2014 / 98 MINS

After his memorable debut film, Sankara (2006), and his subsequent film, Karma (2010), well-loved Sri Lankan director Prasanna Jayakody returns to the cinema with 28, a meditative and thought-provoking work.
Written and directed by Jayakody, 28 is presented as a road movie, featuring the journey of three men transporting a dead body across the hills of Sri Lanka. One of the men, Abasiri, discovers that the body is that of his estranged wife, forcing him on a personal journey of love, understanding and grief.

Narrating the film is Suddhi, the departed wife, whose role binds the film together. A captivating soul, she leads the viewer into a story about tradition, social norms, and ultimately, self-discovery.
