By Santho Goonewardene


A beautiful woman, unfulfilled by life and love, recalls a lackluster evening at a dinner party in a world devoid of romance.


Santho Goonewardene immigrated from Sri Lanka to the United States at the age of 14. She developed a keen interest in film at a very young age but for many years her goal of working in the industry remained a distant dream. After graduating from University, she worked hard to secure a position as an assistant to a film producer. She has since worked her way through various departments on film and television sets including, TRUE DETECTIVE, TWO GUNS and TRUMBO. Her knowledge of filmmaking is practical and hands-on. She is driven by stories of perseverance, and the human capacity to overcome obstacles. Butcher is her first film as a writer and director.
