“Drone” documentary at MAC in November, plus post-screening Q&A.Location: MAC Birmingham, Cannon Hill Park, Birmingham B12 9QH
Date: 10 November 2015. Time: 19:00 – 22:00
A documentary about the CIA drone war, directed by Tonje Hessen Schei. Inside the secret CIA drone war.
The film covers diverse and integral ground from the recruitment of young pilots at gaming conventions and the re-definition of “going to war”, to the moral stance of engineers behind the technology, the world leaders giving the secret “green light” to engage in the biggest targeted killing program in history, and the people willing to stand up against the violations of civil liberties and fight 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.
Join the Institute for Conflict, Cooperation and Security from the University of Birmingham for a post-screening Q&A with experts on the ethics, strategy, and legality of drone use.
