Tamil Stories

New Zealand | 2016 | 14 min | English | Tim Swanson

The film documents the controversial treatment of the Tamil people in Sri Lanka, while providing insight into what it is like to be a refugee or asylum seeker in New Zealand.

Bavan, Prasath, Sasi, and Amutha share their very personal, shocking, and often heartbreaking stories of the Sri Lankan Civil War and the continuing abuses against the Tamil people. Loved ones disappearing, bombs exploding, intimidation, and kidnappings, are common experiences.

Yet, despite everything they have been through, a home in New Zealand, means they now have hope for a new future
