Mayomi (0+)

UK, Sri Lanka, 2008, colour, 48 min.
Director: Carol Salter
Mayomi is an intimate portrait of a young Sri Lankan woman struggling to gain independence, whilst holding her troubled family together in post-Tsunami Sri Lanka.
Mayomi lost her husband to the Tamil Tigers, her mother and home to the Tsunami, and is now the only female member of her family, single-handedly caring for her disabled father, her alcoholic brother and his abandoned six-year old son. She is also still homeless and knows that in a country crippled by bureaucracy and corruption, this is unlikely to change.
The film follows Mayomi as she struggles to overcome the obstacles in and outside her family. Her optimism and courage drives her forward and also provides the heart of this moving and intimate film.
