'Sri Lanka's Killing Fields' to be Screened in California

“Sri Lanka’s Killing Fields” is believed to be the most horrific footage Channel 4 has ever broadcast.

Sri Lanka's Killing Fields

(PALO ALTO) - ‘Sri Lanka’s Killing Fields’ is a powerful documentary produced by UK Channel 4 Broadcasting Corp. It is scheduled to be screened at Ventura Community Centre, 3990 Ventura Court, Palo Alto, California on Saturday, February 18, 2012 between 7-9 pm.

The special guest speakers are Jim McDonald Amnesty International USA’s (AIUSA) country specialist on Sri Lanka and Krishanti Dhamaraj (Principal, SamasaMdhi Fund). The event is being co-hosted by the local chapters of Amnesty International, Group 19 Palo Alto, Group 35 San José and Group 466 San Mateo.

The event will commence with a brief introduction of Sri Lanka’s history and background. Jim McDonald from Chicago, will attend the screening of ‘Sri Lanka’s Killing Fields’ and lead the panel discussion after the movie. After the screening of the controversial movie, he will lead a Q & A session. Attendees will also have the opportunity to sign action letters calling for an international inquiry into human rights abuses in Sri Lanka.

Directed by Callum Macrae, the film was first aired in British television in June 2011. The film captures horrific footage and extensive interviews with witnesses. The disturbing documentary reveals the atrocities committed against civilians during the Sri Lankan Armed Forces’ final war to crush the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) in early 2009.

It includes graphic footage of alleged war crimes, deeply disturbing abuse and murder of Tamil women fighters, disposal of mutilated bodies and crimes against humanity, filmed by the murderers themselves as prized footage.

“Sri Lanka’s Killing Fields” is believed to be the most horrific footage Channel 4 has ever broadcast, featuring devastating video evidence of war crimes committed by Sri Lanka.

This is great news, the issue is too unknown here in California. I have no doubt that many will be attending, long live Tamil Eelam!
