Director: Tonje Hessen Drone brings us inside the covert CIA drone war, following those who live under drones in Pakistan and the drone pilots who struggle with the new warfare. It covers the recruitment of young pilots at gaming conventions, the re-definition of “going to war,” the moral stance of engineers behind the technology, the world leaders giving the “green light” to engage in the biggest targeted killing program in history; also those willing to stand up against the violations of civil liberties and fight for transparency, accountability and justice. Drones may just change wars and possibly our future. 78 minutes
