An innovative season of film events, documentaries, shorts and artists’ films to test ethical and physical boundaries and reveal astonishing stories of achievement.
Norway / Pakistan / USA, 58mins, 2014, dir. Tonje Hessen Schei
An evening of documentary and debate revealing the lines of data, technology and power at work under our shores and in skies beyond.
Drone presents a chilling and revealing study of warfare by remote control, launching the viewer into the CIA drone war in Pakistan. In a conflict acted out thousands of miles away from its targets, it is a tale of soldiers recruited at gaming conventions, faceless targets and killing with joysticks
A thought provoking, cutting-edge insight into the biggest and most controversial military revolution of our age.
