Polity Volume 7, Issue 1, pp.59-63 (Download PDF)

This issue of Polity also includes a review of Asoka Handagama’s new film Ege Esa Aga (Let Her Cry) by Dr. Prabha Manuratne. Dr. Manuratne uses the lens of psychoanalysis to draw attention to how the critical debate on male fantasies and female sexuality has not been able to account for the film’s engagement with the sexuality of the ageing body.
