“Vanni Mouse” is a short film following the journey of two mice that flew from the wood of Vanni. The two inseparable couple end unfortunately in an internment camp (Manik Farm), located in Vavuniya (Sri Lanka) where hundreds of thousands Tamils are imprisoned by the Sri Lankan government. These two mice witness the tragedy of many innocent civilians behind the barbed wires – the unspoken truth. Whether the two will escape from the terrifying environment is the climax of this short film.
