Flying With One Wing

  • Sri Lanka / 2002 / 80min
  • Original Title : Tani tatuwen piyabanna
  • Director : Asoka Handagama


An engaging parable from southern Sri Lanka, about a female garage mechanic struggling to conceal her gender. She is happily married, to a woman, and seems to be doing fine until a car accident lands her in the clinic and the local doctor discovers her little secret. Meanwhile a colleague has started to take an interest, suspecting that his work-mate is a fellow closet gay, and it isn’t long before the ingrained prejudices of this small town start bubbling to the surface.

How much time left before the festival starts?
