This chapter explores the claim about the transformative potential of revolutionary violence for the subaltern and, especially for women, located in postcolonial, deeply hierarchical, and gendered societies. It argues against the civil war in Sri Lanka and investigates the extent to which Tamil women's politics of armed resistance directed by the militarized minority group, the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam. Especially in its ideology of violence, led to their empowerment and coming into being of their agency. The chapter investigates the way women's anxieties around personal and communal victimization as members of a minority community, their sense of personal agency and its realization through internalizing a politics of violence, and their manipulation by heteronormativity are represented in Sri Lankan cinematic texts. It compares the analysis of Beate Arnestad's documentary film My Daughter the Terrorist with Santosh Sivan's parallel cinematic narrative The Terrorist.
