With its diverse landscapes ranging from exotic jungles to pristine beaches and mist shrouded mountains to ancient cities, Sri Lanka offers a wonderful array of backdrops that have been used in a number of international movies. Those interested in utilising some of these stunning locations can enlist the services of production companies in Sri Lanka such as Nkar Filmeye. Providing some of the best film production Sri Lankahas to offer, this experienced name in the industry also features a variety of other film related services including equipment hire and set design.
Sri Lanka is the perfect place for adventure and it is in this setting that the world renowned box office hit, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom was filmed. Directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Harrison Ford, this second part of the Indian Jones Trilogy was partly filmed in Kandy, the country’s hill capital. In fact a hill area in Kandy was also used as a location for another movie, Tarzan, the Ape Man which was directed by John Derek and starred Bo Derek. Of course no mention of international movies shot in Sri Lanka is complete without referring to David Lean’s Academy Award winning The Bridge on the River Kwai which was shot on location in Kitulgala. Beyond Rangoon, Farewell to the King, Paradise Road and Water are among the other films that utilised locations across the island, providing truly unique backdrops.
