“Wounds of Waziristan” is a 30-minute love film by Pakistani journalist Madiha Tahir to the people of Waziristan, a Pakistani state the size of southern New Jersey, as she notes in the film, who continue to be tortured by colonial violence, in this case the relentless presence of, and attacks by, US drones. This is an unforgettable film in its sensitivity in interviewing, selection of images, music and Madiha’s commentary. To view the entire film, click here: http://bit.ly/1g04XCr
“Unmanned: America’s Drone Wars” is a more conventional but nonetheless extremely powerful 1-hour film that gives a broad-scoped look at the US drone war and the spread of drones globally. One of its most important elements is the commentary of former US drone sensor operator Brandon Bryant, particularly in relation to the interviews with those who have been and are being attacked by drones.
Both films end very aptly without three easy steps to solving the problem. We need to sit with these movies and decide what more we need to do.
