Press: Article on The Brothers Shaikh, Freedom House, 1 August 2013

Stateless Media founder, Peter Savodnik’s article in Freedom House: Impunity and the Power of the Press in Sri Lanka: “I reported the story, and I worked with two brilliant filmmakers. Kannan Arunasalam, in Sri Lanka, was artful and fearless; he helped illustrate the beauty and darkness of a country that is still struggling to figure out what it wants to be after a 26-year civil war that ended in 2009. Ed Perkins, in Manchester, managed to capture, rather poignantly, Nasser’s complicated family life and to bring out some of the emotional forces that have shaped his thinking about his brother. Together, Kannan and Ed wove together a story that is heartbreaking, mystifying, awful, and, at moments, redemptive.”
