WorldView-supported No Fire Zone has released a Sinhala language version of the critcally-acclaimed documentary.
The feature length film, directed by Callum Macrae, follows the last final months of the 26 year long Sri Lankan civil war told by the people who lived through it. 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 No Fire Zone team hopes that the Sinhala version will stimulate Sri Lankan discussion about the events:
‘We offer this translation in the hope it will help inform a national discussion in Sri Lanka about the best way forward. We believe the vast majority of people in Sri Lanka, from all communities, want to know the truth and end impunity – and they want to find a peaceful, democratic alternative to the terrible bloodshed of the last decades.
‘Only with justice can come reconciliation and political solutions for long-standing injustices that will ensure the democratic rights of all the communities of this island, and allow them to live peacefully. Please watch this film.’
