Jeevan

On a warm summer night in 1990 the young 25 year old Tamil refugee Jeevan was killed by a Swiss racist in Regensdorf, a suburb of north west Zurich. Jeevan was cremated and his ashes, at the request of his relatives, was taken in an urn by the film director Erich Schmid and transported  to Jaffna. The trip to Jaffna with urn in one hand and video cam-recorder in the other followed the same route, but in reverse, taken by Jeevan in his perilous escape from Jaffna, years before.
