Reflecting on his own practice as a filmmaker working in non-fiction, in this film Samarasinghe takes a collage-like approach to examining issues around representation, verisimilitude, the ethnographic image, and the limitations of the form itself. Shot on seven different cameras (and a video synthesiser) on both film and video over the course of a decade in Sri Lanka, China, and the United States, Samarasinghe delves into some of his fundamental curiosities as a filmmaker.

Show Me Other Places

At the centre of this film is a Sri Lankan woman accessing other places in digital form, while situated in her own physical reality. Navigating through a multitude of spaces from the natural world to man-made environments as well as virtual planes, traditional relationships between the creator, the tool, and the subject are questioned, shattered and reconstructed.
