The Weekend Wrap.

Here are just a few events spread out over the weekend that we think that might interest you. You can start your weekend by heading down to watch a couple of free screenings.

17 February 2017

This Friday the movie DAS KANNINCHEN BIN ICH (THE RABBIT IS ME) is showing. The movie was made in 1965 to encourage discussion of democratization of East German society. It was quickly banned by officials as an attack on the state. In it, a young student has an affair with a hypocritical judge who had once sentenced her brother for his political activities; she eventually confronts him with his opportunism and contribution to injustice. Entrance is free of charge. 

The Family Planning Association of Sri Lanka presents Engendering Yahapalanaya, a film and literary festival aimed at highlighting that gender equality and sexual and reproductive health and rights are also good governance issues. The festival is from 17th to the 19th of February 2017 followed by several 'mini-festivals' which will take place across the country in the subsequent weeks.
