Thank You for Bombing Programme 2020

by Barbara Eder Focus Competition

Three reporters. Three episodes. The images of war and terror that Ewald delivered over years to Austrians via their TV screens are now long forgotten. But he alone can still smell the stench of dead bodies on his clothes. Having unexpectedly received a commission to fly to Afghanistan, his past catches up with him at the airport. Meanwhile, US journalist Lana reports from Kabul on the impending war. She wants to be a renowned reporter one day and sees this commission as a chance to showcase her talents. However, her colleagues refuse to take the beautiful young woman seriously, until she shows them what she’s made of. And finally, spectacular sound and images of death and destruction are expected from news correspondent Cal. Waiting for the first bomb to drop turns into a battle with himself and leads him to question the mechanisms of modern-day reporting. THANK YOU FOR BOMBING portrays three journalists enter a war that has not yet begun, but started in their heads long ago.
