The documentary is about the covert CIA drone war. Through voices on both sides of this new technology, the film reveals crucial information about the drone war in Pakistan and offers unique insights into the nature of drone warfare.
The documentary follows people on both sides of the drone technology. The unique access to drone victims in Waziristan is juxtaposed to drone pilots who struggle to come to terms with the new warfare. 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.Written by
Again, if we could have an open discussion on the political implications of "pop culture" maybe we wouldn't have to wait for the ties between the military infrastructures and the videogame designers to be exposed, but would be able to criticize it based on the game themselves. Right after "Dirty War : the world is a battlefield", this documentary focuses on exposing the drone warfare from the accounts of drone pilots, the campaigning to make it a more visible cause outside of the strike zones (read, in the west/united states), and the recruiting of geeks.
