A Lost White Tribe: The Eurasians of Sri Lanka is a personal look at some of the last remaining ‘Eurasians’. The once identifiable Eurasian presence, remnants of a colonial legacy, is now no more. This is the start of a journey for me and my main focus has been is on those whose roots are in the ‘planting’ community. The people who shared their personal stories and memories did just that, so the presentations are a collection of memory and particular personal stories and not an attempt to chronicle a ‘history’.
