Join us for a fascinating event at the intersection of documentary filmmaking, human rights activism and international law. Award-winning documentary filmmaker Callum Macrae is on hand Wednesday, February 4, 2015, at American University’s School of Communication for the screening of “No Fire Zone,” which tells the story of the final 138 days of the 26-year Sri Lanka civil war and sheds light on the government’s brutal military offensive that saw between 40,000 and 70,000 civilians die.
“No Fire Zone” documents war crimes, summary execution, torture and sexual violence with direct evidence recorded by both victims and perpetrators on mobile phones and small cameras. View the trailer below.
The February 4 event is FREE and open to the general public. The screening and panel discussion are part of the launch of the Pulitzer Center’s Campus Consortium partnership with American University.
