Thunweni Yaamaya’ needs a 16,343 US dollar restoration cost Featured

Restoration of Dharmasiri Bandaranayake’s ‘Thunweni Yaamaya’ will require a 16,343 US dollar cost, Prasad Lab of India has informed Sri Lanka’s State Film Corporation.

The only remaining copy of the highly-acclaimed Sinhala film is facing damage beyond repair, ‘Resa’ reports.

Bandaranayake has said in a facebook posting that he could not afford that sum and that he was ready to handover the film’s rights to anyone who would bear that cost.

When contacted, SFC chairman Sitendra Senaratne said he would raise the matter with the president very soon.

Senaratne also said a plan to preserve all Sri Lankan films would be launched in the near future.
