Drone

Screenings

Drone charts the process and steps of the CIA’s covert drone war in Pakistan. It explores what it is like to live under the constant threat of these pilotless, yet powerful aircraft in the remote regions of Pakistan, but also explores the consequences felt by the pilots, the moral stance adopted by the engineers behind the drones and the arguments of politicians who fight to justify their use. From the recruitment of young pilots at gaming conventions, to the people willing to stand up against the violations of civil liberties, the film raises questions about the biggest military revolution of our age, and offers insights into the nature of drone warfare. A look at the erasure of the empathetic, accountable human in 21st century warfare.
