“The US is violating one of the most fundamental rights of all: the right to life.”

This is a poignant quote from the Norwegian documentary DRONE, by director Tonje Hessen Schei. Although I have yet to see it, DRONE appears to be a very powerful and necessary work that takes on the dreadful subject of drone warfare from very original and critical perspectives:

“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.”
