[TamilNet, Tuesday, 31 December 2002, 17:43 GMT]
“Nitharsanam” TV unit of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) Tuesday released the film “ Kadaloorakatru” (A wind along the coast) produced after the ceasefire agreement between the government and LTTE came into force, simultaneously in six districts in the northeast province celebrating the tenth anniversary of Sea Tigers, sources said.

Film releasePresiding the Trincomalee event, Attorney-at-Law Mr.K.Sivapalan, member of the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) in Trincomalee, said "films on war in western countries are produced and released after several years."

“But in Thamileelam films on Tamil armed freedom struggle are produced by the LTTE cadres who film while the enemy army is engaged by our fighters in the field. We have lost several talented fighters who were manning the cameras,” said Mr. Sivapalan.

Mr.Tharman, Trincomalee district head of the Tamil Eelam Economic development Organization (TEEDOR) made the welcome address.

Film releaseNitharsanam official Mr.Veera said, “we have received several requests from South Indian movie makers for true stories from our freedom struggle to produce films. But we turned down all those requests, as we do not want our sacrifices made in the battlefield to be used for cheap commercial films.”

Mr.Eehan, Commander of LTTE in Kumburupiddy area hoisted the Thamil Eelam national flag. A mother whose two sons died in the freedom struggle as martyrs lighted the flame of sacrifice. The first copy of the “ Kadaloorakatru” was handed over by Mr.Eehan to Ms Mangaleswary Singaravelu, mother of Major Gajendran who died in the freedom struggle.

The film was released in Jaffna at University Kailasapathy Auditorium, Mullai Maha Vidiyalayam in Mullaitivu district, Urban Council hall in Vavuniya, Urban Council hall in Mannar, Hindu College auditorium in Trincomalee and Devanayagam Hall in Batticaloa simultaneously, Nitharsanam sources said.
