Perianayaki

11m Drama 2021

For this Sri Lankan immigrant, it’s another day of stacking supermarket shelves – and of cultural misunderstandings.

Fifty-six-year-old Perianayaki contends with the difficulties of fitting into her new home, especially at the local supermarket where she works. Eye-opening and brimming with compassion, the latest film from director Bala Murali Shingade is a slice-of-life character study that provokes questions about multiculturalism and our assumptions about the people we encounter in daily life.
