Saturday 10 October: Asitha Ameresekere presents Do Not Erase and 14

British- Sri-Lankan Asitha Ameresekere is a writer and BAFTA-winning filmmaker, brainwashed by Greek myth at an early age and has attempted to tell stories ever since. His collection of short stories, ‘Wedding Gifts and Other Presents’, was published in 2008 in Sri Lanka and he is currently developing two feature film scripts and a novella.

Movie: Do Not Erase won the 2007 BAFTA Best Short Film award. It is set against the backdrop of the Iraq conflict, exploring its impact on an ordinary family in the north of England. Annie sends video diaries to her 19 year-old son, Darren, who is stationed in Iraq with the British Forces. She keeps him updated on all the news from home. But it is not long before the video becomes more than just a diary.
