With You, Without You (Oba Nathuwa, Oba Ekka)

Filmmaker in Person!
Acclaimed Sri Lankan director Vithanage skillfully transposes Dostoevsky’s The Meek Ones to post-war Sri Lanka, to create this moving meditation on the trauma of war. When lonely pawnbroker Sarathsiri meets the enigmatic Tamil refugee Selvi – he thinks he has finally found a way to escape his past. But a chance visit from an old army friend reveals a terrible secret and forces the two lovers, from opposite sides of the civil war, to confront their histories and demons. With a tight script, wonderfully nuanced plot and haunting cinematography, this is Sri Lankan independent cinema at its best.
