Weaving a tapestry of courage through 5 & ½ Yards of shame: Taboo subjects, female sexuality and desire in contemporary Sri Lankan cinema
Sheersha Perera's research interest is in contemporary Sri Lankan and Sri Lankan diasporic cinema. This investigation will proceed through the creation of a short film focusing on taboo subjects such as female sexuality and desire, which in turn may inspire further Sri Lankan, female film art. Research for this project includes the analysis of films by contemporary Sri Lankan filmmakers, concentrating on women’s cinematic expression.
