Film screening: Still Here (2023)

Join us for a panel discussion with renowned Sri Lankan Italian director Suranga D. Katugampala to explore his latest feature film Still Here (2023). Shot between Colombo and Milan, the film bridges genres of neo-noir, documentary, and video art, and brings together a group of artists into multidisciplinary experimentation practices. In the film, reality and fantasy merge, throwing the spatial coordinates of migration into question. We will show brief excerpts from the film and respond to the themes of migration and transnational communities which emerge from it with expert discussants Dr Shamara Wettimuny and Prof Derek Duncan. The discussion will be moderated by Prof Emma Bond who is also the event co-organiser.
