DRONE

by Tonje Hessen Schei

synopsis

Inside the secret CIA drone war. Intimate stories from the war on terror. People living under drones in Pakistan and drone pilots struggling with killing through joysticks in the US.

Recruitment of young pilots at gaming conventions, the re-definition of going to war, the moral stance of engineers behind the technology, world leaders giving the secret “greenlight” to one of the biggest targeted killing programs in history and people fighting for transparency, accountability and justice.

This is just the beginning. In the midst of fast advancement of technology and lagging international legislation the film shows how drones change wars and possibly our future.
