Director Statement

This is a slightly weird short film. The long run time (not 40, but 30) and the unique Story telling method add some qualities of a "feature movie" to this project. Similarly, this can be considered as a project which was done by a group of Sri Lankan students, in the time of Corona, from a very low budget. Hope you'll enjoy Three-Way Junction.
