Funny Boy

Funny Boy Movie Poster

Shot on location and set in Sri Lanka in the 1970's and 80's, FUNNY BOY explores the awakening of sexual identity by a young boy named Arjie (portrayed by Arush Nand and Brandon Ingram).

As political tensions escalate to a boiling point between the minority Tamils and the majority Sinhalese, a young boy comes of age in a society and family that doesn't embrace difference outside of societal norms. The film chronicles Arjie's struggle to find balance and self-love despite the absence of empathy and understanding.
