Dir. Callum Macrae
Sri Lanka / UK - 2013 - 93 mins

Carefully evidenced and powerfully measured No Fire Zone: The Killing Fields of Sri Lankachronicles the final 138 days of the 26-year Sri Lankan civil war. Told by the people who lived through it, It is a meticulous and chilling portrayal of some of the worst war crimes, and crimes against humanity, of recent times.

Civilians, Tamil Tiger camera operators and government soldiers filmed the events using small cameras and mobile phones. This disturbing footage is carefully analysed and authenticated by video analysts.

Macrae pieces together the scenes with personal accounts from civilians who survived the conflict and testimonies from UN officials who were forced to leave the area. The Sri Lankan government contests the depiction of events shown in No Fire Zone and dismisses the documentary as fake.

It is vitally important that this feature reaches the widest possible audience - Empire

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Callum Macrae.
