"No Fire Zone: The Killing Fields Of Sri Lanka" To Be Released Online In India
22 February, 2014
The documentary "No Fire Zone: The Killing Fields of Sri Lanka" has been refused a censor certificate for release in theaters by the Indian Central Board of Film Certification. In response, Callum Macrae, the documentary’s director has decided to make it available free online in India – from Sunday 23 February on http://nofirezone.org/watch
The producers of the controversial documentary, have accused the Indian authorities of “political censorship of unpalatable truths” for refusing a censor certificate on the grounds it “may strain friendly relations with Sri Lanka.” Claiming that “most of the visuals are of a disturbing nature,” the Board turned down the censor certificate for the documentary.
This means that the film - which documents war crimes and crimes against humanity committed at the end of the Sri Lanka civil war - is banned from theatrical release in India.
