Anatomy of a Protest

Anatomy of a Protest

6-8.30PM Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA), The Mall, St. James, London, SW1Y 5AH

 

The Sri Lanka Campaign, International Working Group and Retold World will be hosting a private screening of Kannan Arunasalam’s latest feature documentary, ‘Anatomy of a Protest’ (73 mins) to be shown at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) on Monday, 17 June, 2024, 6.30pm — 8.00pm. 

This new film, following on from Kannan’s previous documentary, the award winning ‘Sri Lanka’s Rebel Wife’, follows the rise and fall of Sri Lanka’s Aragalaya movement (or “struggle”) — the non-violent, popular protest movement that forced Sri Lanka’s feared and revered president, Gotabaya Rajapaksa, to step down and flee the country in 2022. The film tells the story from the unique perspective of some of the central activists involved. Can their fight against a corrupt dynasty overcome a system determined to prevail? 

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion. We have the privilege of presenting the director, central characters in the film and those who bring direct insights into the protest movement and Sri Lanka’s economic crisis.
