Movie Info

The film is set in the mid 1990s and centres around three main narratives, which evolve simultaneously. These are simple and ordinary people, thrown into the throes of a destructive and bloody civil war. The experiences they encounter may not be directly related to the ensuing conflict, but, these events, like the inconsistent weather, steer their lives. They yet have to continue, transcending these encounters and exist in a society that is traumatised and disturbed by nearly twenty years of civil war. Arafath, an eleven year-old Muslim boy from Talaimannar struggles to keep his companion and friend, a dog, while his family is forced out of its home by the LTTE rebels. Chamari, a young woman, resident of Colombo looks for her (Sri Lanka Airforce) pilot Husband, said to be 'missing in action'. A young soldier, Duminda, walks into a brothel in the Sacred City of Anuradhapura, only to find his sister among the sex workers there.


Critic Reviews for August Sun

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

  • Although the interweaving of the three narratives gets choppy at times, the film's determined forward momentum keeps the viewer engaged and hoping, like the characters themselves, that satisfaction or resolution will be found at the end of the road.

  • If it was made in North America, it would be a made-for-TV effort, not a theatrical release.

  • Intriguing but impenetrable.
