Commotion in Sri Lanka over Festivalfilm
In Sri Lanka commotion has arisen over documentary No Fire Zone by filmmaker Callum Macrae. The film provides overwhelming evidence for the war crimes and crimes against humanity committed by the Sri Lankan army against the Tamil population during the civil war that spread death and destruction in the Spring of 2009. The government of Sri Lanka accuses filmmaker Macrae of manipulating video footage showing government troops executing the 12 year-old son of Tamil-Tigers’ leader Velupillai Prabhakan. No Fire Zone will be screened at the Movies that Matter Festival, 21-27 March in The Hague.
