I met Mayomi while working in Sri Lanka for Oxfam, and built up a trusting relationship with her. I was immediately struck by her quiet stoicism amid the uncertainly of her life. She was left holding her family together yet had no voice within her family and the community.
My objective was to make a carefully observed film that gradually unfolds, concentrating on the small moments, that reveals the complexities of this women´s life. It was filmed over an 18 months period.
After working at the BBC, I studied editing at the National Film and Television School. Since then, I have been able to combine my passion for editing, working as a freelance editor on various shorts, features, television dramas and documentaries, with making my own films.
