National Bird

by Sonia Kennebeck Border Lines

What goes on in the mind of the person who decides who is to be targeted in a drone attack? And how many civilian lives can be put at risk in an attack? For years, Heather, Daniel and Lisa have worked for the U.S. Air Force’s secret drone programme. Disillusioned by the methods of their former employer and traumatised by the immense suffering they caused in Afghanistan and Pakistan while safely sitting at an office desk in the US, they decide to make their story public. Co-produced by Wim Wenders and Errol Morris, the highly charged documentary film NATIONAL BIRD uncovers the grave effects of the drone war on both sides of the wall.
