During the Sri Lankan civil war an international media ban meant the conflict was largely unrecorded or witnessed by outsiders. Most ‘news’ was either rumours or filtered by the government. Polis Summer School student Jasmit Shahi reports on a talk at LSE by a young student film-maker who managed to gain access in the immediate aftermath of the ceasefire. Guy Gunaratne, (@guygunaratne) is now head of interactive video platform Storygami and Creative Director of CODOC, an award winning social documentary outfit dedicated to creating spaces for critical thinking through digital media.
