Having returned from Sri Lanka a few weeks ago I have finally had time to edit my documentary about the Afro-Sri Lankan community which was kindly supported by the South Asian Journalists Association (SAJA). I chose to shoot this project in September because on the 24th they held an event commemorating 500 years since they believed their ancestors were first brought to the island by the Portuguese and 200 years since slavery was abolished in Sri Lanka. It was the first time the community has ever held such an event and was an incredibly special and important time for them.
