“A deeply disturbing look at drone warfare”—Washington Post
From executive producers Wim Wenders and Errol Morris, this documentary follows the harrowing journey of three U.S. military veteran whistleblowers determined to break the silence surrounding America’s secret drone war. Tortured by guilt for their participation in the killing of faceless terror suspects, and despite the threat of being prosecuted, these three veterans offer an unprecedented look inside this secret program to reveal the haunting cost of America’s global drone strikes. Director Sonia Kennebeck gives rare insight into the U.S. drone program through the eyes of veterans and survivors; the films images haunt the audience and bring a faraway issue close to home.
This free film screening begins at 7:45 pm. Come early to claim a good spot, and be sure to review our tips for enjoying movies outside at PROXY.
