No More Tears Sister is a 2005 documentary film about the leftist revolutionary Dr.Rajini Thiranagama who joined the guerrilla group the Tamil Tigers in reaction to a brutal government crackdown in Sri Lanka. Thiranagama ultimately left the group, however, when she realized it was more a murderous group than a revolutionary force and was assassinated by LTTE on September 21, 1989 when she was only 35.[1]

No More Tears Sister was written and directed by Helene Klodawsky and aired on PBS Point of View series in 2006. The film received the Gemini Award for Best Photography in a Documentary Program or Series, presented to cinematographer François Dagenais.[2]
