Akkara Paha (Sinhala, Five Acres of Land) is a 1970 Sri Lankan drama film directed by Dr. Lester James Peries, with the screen play dialogue and script by Dr. Tissa Abeysekara. The film stars Milton Jayawardena as Sena, a young man from a rural society who travels to the city to pursue a higher education and Malini Fonseka as Kumari.
Tissa Abeysekera adapted Madawela S. Ratnayake’s book as a follow-up to Golu Hadawatha. The film received a lukewarm response in Sri Lanka, but was well received when shown in New York at the Museum of Modern Art’s festival.
