‘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.
