My Daughter the Terrorist

"A rare, inside look at an organization that most of the world has blacklisted as a terrorist group. Made by the first foreign film crew to be given access to the Tamil Tigers (LTTE) of Sri Lanka.

Their story is told through cinema verite footage, newsreel footage, and interviews with the women and Dharsika's mother.
