"No Fire Zone: The Killing Fields Of Sri Lanka" To Be Released Online In India

By Countercurrents.org

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.

For more information – or to arrange interviews with Director, Callum Macrae - please contact Sophie Toumazis and Elizabeth Dunk at tpr media consultants +44(0)20 8347 7020 or +44(0)7974 428858 sophie@tpr-media.com / elizabeth@tpr-media.com
