Drone 12+

Tonje Hessen Schei, N 2014, Original version / Czech subtitles, 78 min
Drone

It's like a game. Pursue your target from high up in the sky and then, with one press of a button, destroy it. Thousands of miles away in the mountains of Pakistan, people are dying. Over the last decade, the US military's massive deployment of drones has changed the face of war. The Americans present it as a key and effective tool aimed at the destruction of Islamists. But what does it look like in reality? Far greater numbers of innocent civilians are killed than terrorists. In the film, which goes behind the scenes of combat operations, we hear from former and current military drone operators, engineers and Pakistani civilians who have survived an attack or lost family members.
