About "Angam" the movie:
"Angam" is a documentary film, exploring an ancient traditional Sri Lankan martial art called "Angam" which is also known as "Angampora" in the popular culture.
The film will take you through an untold story of the origin of Angam, along with the evolution of Sri Lankans through traditional folk stories of locals and scientific findings of archeologists. It will also give you an overview of how Angam has survived up till today and what will be its' future.
The film unravels around one family who practices and teaches Angam, headed by Guru Karunapala. Students of Guru have spread this unique martial art form in to far corners of the world, ensuring its' presence in the international arena.
Renowned archeologist & former head of Archeology Department of Sri Lanka, Dr. Siran Deraniyagala, is also featured in this film, contributing valuable scientific findings on the origin of Sri Lankans.
"Angam" documentary film was produced under very tight or no financial backup and with very limited technical resources. These factors resulted limitations in the scope of the film makers' attempt. The entire project was filmed by an HD Panasonic camcorder and edited on home PC's and Laptops. It was the film teams' high enthusiasm, the "never-say-die" attitude and every form of encouragement of our friends which enabled the near-impossible to be a reality and end up with an documentary film of this scale.
