‘The Last Phase’, a documentary film depicting the life story of a former female LTTE cadre during the final stages of the humanitarian operation was screened at a function held at the Cinnamon Lakeside Hotel in Colombo on Monday (20) evening.

Secretary Defence and Urban Development Gotabaya Rajapaksa graced the ceremony as the chief guest. The 45 minute documentary is directed and edited by Jeevan Chandimal.

According to a press release issued by the organizers said, “The documentary revolves around the life of a former LTTE female cadre who grew up at 'Senchcholai', the LTTE run orphanage for tamil children. 'Jayawadanee' was brought up in an environment that was deliberately planned to portray the other side as the necessary evil.”

“She like many others grew up with guns around her. Though she was an exceptional student she was not allowed to pursue higher education. Instead she was made to join the terrorist outfit as a medical cadre,” it said.

    So where are the English sub-titles?

    The documentary is good, except there's no subtitles for the Tamil interviews, how do we know what the people are saying. The whole point of the Documentary is lost because of it, because the main subjects all speak in Tamil. Other than that it's good.

    People that don't like to believe channel 4, there is no point in watching this. Why do we fool our selves believing only what like to hear. Only people seeking the truth should watch documentaries whether it is good or bad news. Otherwise we are wasting our time.
