  • No Fire Zone tells the story of the final 138 days of the 26-year Sri Lankan civil war, a brutal offensive which saw between 40,000 and 70,000 civilians die.

With direct evidence of war crimes, summary execution, torture and sexual violence recorded by both victims and perpetrators on mobile phones and small cameras, this is not just a film of record but also a call to action.
