Rekava (Sinhala for “Line of Destiny”) is a 1956 film based on village life and mythical beliefs in Sri Lanka (then Ceylon).

Many Sinhala films in that time were remakes of South Indian films and were not adapted to the Sri Lankan context, even having unnatural dialog.

Rekava is Sri Lankan director Lester James Peries’s first film and was Willie Blake’s first time as cinematographer. The film was well-received internationally, having been shown at the 1957 Cannes Film Festival and was included in the main competition.
