The Withered Kadupul is a film about a mom who acts immorally to save her family, a daughter who is ashamed of her, and a brother who dreams for a better future. The message I tried to convey through this film is that no one should judge a person based on their social status. I also tried to shine a light on some serious social issues in Sri Lanka such as poverty and forced prostitution.

As a Buddhist, I have learned that to achieve Nibbana and get out of this cycle of reincarnation we must release ourselves from all attachments. Attachments are the cause of all hurt and sadness. My film “Attachments” is a surreal work addressing my perspective on different kinds of attachments.
