Storyline

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.

Thought-provoking and well-made documentary

As a teacher I seldom see movies with true teaching potential for my students. This was an exception.

We are, in our part of the world, used to think of ourself as the good guys. The US, however misguided at times, is a force for good in the world. President Obama is a Nobel Peace Price-laureate, for heaven's sake. -And our news networks keep catering to this view of the world.

But someone somewhere disagrees with this perspective, and you know what: They just might be on to something. And whether they are right or wrong, they are growing in number. And something really is rotten in the state of (the Union).

In this documentary we meet ordinary people who've been the victims of drone warfare, who want to tell their story. We meet humanitarians who try to help out in this regard. And last but certainly not least: We meet some of the people who themselves have been a part of the drone warfare.

If nothing else, this documentary made my students think critically about what role we play in the world, and how we are perceived in the various regions of the world. And maybe even more important: They started questioning the ways in which we as a country make use of our military resources, and how we treat the men and women who serve.

I myself also learned a lot from this documentary, and recommend it wholeheartedly.
