DVDfever.co.uk and Spectrum have teamed up to give you a chance to win a copy of Drone on DVD directed by directed by Tonje Hessen Schei.
There are 3 DVDs to be won!
Drone is a new documentary directed by award-winning female director Tonje Hessen Schei, and released by Spectrum.
A profound and at times terrifying insight in to the world of drone warfare, Drone offers unprecedented access to those with first-hand experience in one of the most controversial practices of modern day conflict.
Drone 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. This is just the beginning. In the midst of fast advancement of technology and lagging international legislation the film shows how drones change wars and possibly our future.
The film features comments from many people including human rights lawyer Shahzad Akbar – Founder of Foundation for Fundamental Rights, Noor Behram – Photo-journalist in Waziristan, Brandon Bryant and Michael Haas – both former drone pilots for the US Airforce, Clive Stafford Smith – Founder of Reprieve, and Chris Woods – an investigative journalist.
Tonje Hessen Schei is an award-winning documentary filmmaker whose films focus on human rights, the environment and social justice. Tonje directed and produced Play Again and Independent Intervention, both of which have won several international awards. The films have been screened on all continents in over 100 countries, and are used by schools and universities globally.
