Program note

In 1814, Ceylon(now Srilanka), with its beautiful nature in the Indian Ocean, is facing a period of upheaval about to become part of the British Empire. Prasanna VITHANAGE depicts the survival and love of the outcast in the lowest place in society through Children of the Sun. The British intervene in tensions seeking conspiracy between the royal family from South Indian descendant and the Buddhist noblemen, but the plan failed. The family members of the aristocracies are captured by the royal army, and are forced to commit suicide.

Young Tikiri chooses to get remarried with an untouchable, Vijaya, but she cannot change her attitude as a former upper class. She brings crisis in the community eventually leading both to go deep in the mountains in exile. The most dangerous hazard is not the disease-spreading bugs or wild animals, but other human beings. As many villages are devastated by either royal army or British troops, survivors have to cope with the periods of chaos when basic security is not guaranteed. (PARK Sungho)
