International Partnerships

A man of many trades, Sri Lankan native Chamindha Mahanayakage was invaluable to the success of shooting the documentary while we were on the ground in Sri Lanka as our foremost guide.  Really, Chamindha is no stranger to filming and photography himself.  As part of a research team at the University of Colombo he is credited with being the first person in history to photograph the Horton’s Plain Slender Loris, which is a small primate endemic to Sri Lanka.  The Periclean Scholars Class of 2011 has now had the fortune of hosting Chamindha as our Periclean Scholar in Residence at Elon University in NC for the past few weeks.
