A tale from Eelam
A Tale from Eelam is a study of specific sites located in the territories the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam aimed to make their own during the 26-year Sri Lankan civil war - sites where critical military attacks or human rights abuses took place. Little exists in the way of officially accredited photographic documentation from the war in existence, and emerging photographs and video footage by civilians and former soldiers is dismissed as fake. History is once again being written by the victor and a disputed 'collective instruction' is taking form, undermining the search for 'truth' and impeding the prospect of reconciliation.
