No Fire Zone: The Killing Fields of Sri Lanka

Year
2013
Country
UK
Duration
93’
Director
Callum Macrae

This is the story of the final months of the 26-year long Sri Lankan civil war. The story is told by the people who lived through it, and through some of the most dramatic and disturbing video evidence ever seen. This footage – direct proof of war crimes, summary execution, torture and sexual violence – was recorded by both the victims and perpetrators, and forms the central narrative of the film. The government believed they would get away with this – but there were witnesses. Their extraordinary testimony and incredible footage is at the heart of this film.
