A live issue: Tamil oppression in Sri Lanka

Award-winning director Callum Macrae previewed his newest documentary No Fir Zone – the Killing Fields of Sri Lanka at the Frontline Club yesterday. No Fire Zone uses forensically verified footage from civilian mobile phones and government forces cameras to chronicle the last 138 days of the 26 year long Sri Lankan civil war between the Sinhalese led government and the Tamil Tigers (LTTE).

The film documents with sometimes disturbing footage the barbaric onslaught and effects of shelling by Sri Lankan government forces on the self-proclaimed no fire zone in the northeastern region of Sri Lanka.
