Buddhasasana, Religious and Cultural Affairs Minister Vidura Wickremenayaka expressing his condolences stated that Dr. Sumithra Peries was an influential   and extremely talented woman who contributed immensely to making Sri Lankan film industry great.

“She had the luck to closely associate with Dr. Lester James Peiris as his wife. So she was able to identify and explore various facets of Sri Lanka’s cinema industry. Introducing films like Ganga Addara to the public, she had a multi-faceted, in depth approach towards our film industry. She also explored certain areas that other film directors would back away. She became an award winning, internationally recognized film director with this courageous and fearless approach. It is deeply saddening occasion and the loss is very much ours.” Minister Wickremenayake noted.
