No Fire Zone banned from screening in India
The controversial documentary film No Fire Zone, has been refused a censor certificate for release in theatres by the Indian Central Board of Film Certification.
The producers of the controversial documentary, have accused the Indian authorities of “political censorship” for refusing a censor certificate on the grounds it “may strain friendly relations with Sri Lanka.”
In response, Callum Macrae, the documentary’s director has decided to make it available free online in India.
The ban on the film will add to the controversy over the Indian government’s refusal to grant a visa to the film’s director, Callum Macrae to attend a premiere of the documentary in New Delhi and Mumbai in November last year.
