DRONE

Directed by: Tonje Hessen Schei
Documentary        Norway               78 Minutes               Unrated

Drone mines the contentious reality of drone technology. The testimonials of drone victims in Waziristan is juxtaposed with drone pilots struggling to come to terms with the new warfare. The film covers diverse ground from the recruitment of young pilots at gaming conventions and the re-definition of “going to war” to the moral stance of engineers behind the technology, from the world leaders giving the secret “greenlight” to engage in the biggest targeted killing program in history to the people willing to stand up against the violations of civil liberties and fight for transparency, accountability, and justice.

Q & A to follow film.
