MD Mahindapala – Director of Photography

Considered one of the finest cinematographers Sri Lanka has produced, Mahindapala’s entry into feature films was a late one. Being involved with the Government Film Unit on many documentaries and other films for most of his career, he entered the world of feature films with Sudath Devapriya’s film “Tharanaya”, in 1992. He began his fruitful collaboration with director Prasanna Vithanage on “Anantha Rathriya (Dark Night of the Soul)” in 1993 and collaborated with him on “Purahanda Kaluwara (Death on a Full Moon Day)”, “Ira Madiyama (August Sun)” and “Akasa Kusum.”
