cinema and cohabitation in an exciting festival
“For a Son, the film of Suranga Deshapriya Katugampala: for the emotional story of an intimacy that imposes itself on the screen as an authentic social portrait; for it's realism that fades into a seductive symbolic map; and for the rendition of the leading actress Kaushalya Fernando who expresses through her anxious breathing and silent glances the fatigue of the path to full multiculturality. ”
it started with the smell of fried onions.
we accompanied F. in the prefecture, then we stopped at the western union.
the van is here, the tents have all the pickets,
the mustard is missed,
did you get the rice?
how we bring the pots?
but today we're going to Pesaro.
nella and her daughter took a blablacar from Verona station,
sandra, sara and mariateresa didn't miss the train,
julian and his family, simona and silvia will reach us from Milan,
giulia and andrea are waiting for us at the camping.
we're coming in a nine-posts van.
Malshan, where are you?
finally in the afternoon we will see the movie together.
we camped between the trees.
“At times it is very good to leave ones home, ones comfort zone, to spend weekend in camping centers, So it has been for good three days, sleeping in a tent in Camping Panoramica in Pesaro.
It was just days I never wanted to come to an end , as our group of Actors , Actress , Camera men and Our director Suranga Deshapriya Katugampala, enjoyed our selves.
Below was the camping, tent, I slept for 2 nights while others were in their tents, it was, just like a Village scene. Being the only Nigerian in mist of Italians, Sirilanks, and Senegales with all look no Colours, languages were no barriers .
This is an opportunity or experience, I pray to always come my way again and again.
My special thanks to all those that trusted in me and chooses me to be part of the group.”
we are celebrating !!!
the work made together for this film,
having believed, and still now, again and again.
all these things have brought us till here.
after the screening a lady said that as an italian, she would have preferred a different representation of the foreigners, she would have preferred to see a caregiver saying that in this country she has found a second family.
we dedicate this moment
to all the hard truths,
to the unresolved conflicts that still live in our families,
to the deep passions that stirred when the reality as it is appeared to us is senseless.
when we tried,
and we found that we were not come out from nothing,
but from a mother and a story.
