WorldView-funded No Fire Zone has been nominated for the Bertha Documentary Award at the 2014 One World Media Awards. Now in its 26th year, the awards recognise excellence in international media coverage.
No Fire Zone is the culmination of three years of journalistic investigation and contains deeply disturbing new evidence. It is a devastating indictment of the men responsible for the crimes and an exposé of the failure of the international community to prevent this catastrophe. It also addresses the culpability of the Tamil Tigers, themselves responsible for war crimes and for preventing civilians from escaping the carnage.
Carefully evidenced, the film uses eyewitness accounts, expert opinion, and translated mobile phone and camera footage from both the victims and the perpetrators of violence. This footage enables the filmmakers, in a way almost never done before, to piece together the day-to-day horror of this war.
The winner of the award will be announced on 6th May.
