“Frangipani : Opening Ourselves to Dialogue” by Samantha Sirimanne Hyde

Frangipani is a Sinhala film made in Sri Lanka in 2014 written, directed and produced by Visakesa Chandrasekaram, a Sydney-based lawyer and creative writer. While it is an important and welcome addition to the genre of queer film in South Asia, it would be doing it a disservice to label it just as a gay flick. Rather it is an exploration of complex sexual identities, desire, fate and the role that socio-cultural and economic factors and realities play in the lives of those who do not fit neatly into either traditional heterosexual or even homosexual moulds. In a broader sense the film is an invitation to explore fundamental issues of what one calls the human condition.
