DRONE says
DRONE premiers in Portland this week! After an incredible US release in NY and LA last week DRONE now opens at the Clinton Street Theatre on Friday the 27th 5pm:

Incendiary & Ground-breaking documentary DRONE

The armed drone is the defining weapon in the War on Terror—and one of the most controversial. First praised for surgical precision, laser-like focus and a capacity to reduce collateral damage, the drone has come to represent a reckless industrialized killing program reviled across the world. This includes the development of “militainment” programs, in which video-games are basically used as both a recruiting tool and a means of making military violence appear as an innocuous part of everyday life. Featuring survivors and those who live under constant threat of drone strikes, activist lawyers attempting to use international courts to stop the program, military analysts who still maintain their efficacy and Brandon Bryant, a former drone pilot turned vocal critic, Drone offers an absorbing and revelatory perspective on this disturbing weaponry.
