‘MESSED WITH THE WRONG GENERATION’
Would you dance with me, on the eve of our revolution?
A Film by Nathali Devinka
Sri Lankans are finally experiencing a mental rebirth and a newfound freedom resulting from years of corruption and the worst economic crisis in history of Sri Lanka. They not only stole money from you and me, but also our freedom with the promise of security.
We are finally hitting the streets to bring down The Rajapakses’ and shady politicians since 1948. This is the millennium of aftermath.
We have finally begun to dream dangerously and identify ourselves with every oppressed Sri Lankan.
The film ‘Messed With The Wrong Generation’ will explode on screen with a repertoire of stories and blazing determination from behind a camera where Nathali Devinka, an independent filmmaker and a humble Idealist fighting side by side with her people. It is a candid expose, a narrative of the common man and a journey that will unravel as the protests continue to bring down the president of Sri Lanka.
Let this film be a savior and absolute redeemer of the archaic, pompous and stifling system in Sri Lanka. To make the existing model obsolete and bring more power to the people.
Our government has not heard the voice of our generation.
It is much, much louder than they care to remember.
People should not be afraid of the government.
NOW, the government should be afraid of you and me.

A Filmmaker, Television Producer, Writer, Photographer, Painter and a Mental Health Advocate, Nathali Devinka began her journey as a copywriter in JWT (J. Walter Thompson) at the age of 19. With her bigger dream to imitate life through cinema and television, she joined Sirasa TV as an Executive Producer and was later instrumental in launching Hiru TV and TV1 (ONE). Nathali Devinka’s greatest passion is speaking up in order to challenge the taboos against Mental Health in Sri Lanka and encourage people to come forth with their stories and experiences on living with mental health conditions.
Since her early childhood she has been an avid observer of her own vivid mind and would rebel against the norm. She would often be misinterpreted, misunderstood for she never resort to a life of order and was labelled a “nobody” and even bullied severely. Unable to cope up with the rising emotions she would dive into long periods of deep silence and isolation. As a result of this era of rejection and loneliness emerged many works of creative extraordinaire that would later define her profession and her way of life.
In 2017, Nathali published ‘Naked and Exposed’, a short memoir of her personal experience on battling mental illness and suicide. Her memoir became a voice to the many voiceless victims of mental illness. With the objective of normalizing mental health in Sri Lanka, she continues to share her story on multiple platforms. Her brutal honesty has encouraged many to reach out to her with their own stories, learn the art of acceptance which is one of the biggest challenges for those suffering with mental health conditions. Her campaigns also addresses the danger behind misinformation which often leave those who suffer from mental illnesses crippled for life.
Nathali’s ability to narrate the truth, her spontaneity in storytelling and honesty are her greatest asset in keeping her audiences hooked despite the language or platform she uses to express.
Our target is to raise Rs.6 Million within one month (This film will be internationally distributed and we will continue to apply for grants around the world as a film budget is much more)
11th of April 2022 - We are off with our campaign, really looking forward to your support.
