Drones are changing the way we conduct war. They’re also transforming the ways in which soldiers experience it. In National Bird, filmmaker Sonia Kennebeck explores the United States’ controversial drone war, providing rare insights through the eyes and experiences of veterans and survivors. The film follows three whistleblowers: former drone operators who were involved in top-secret tracking of targets and who now live with guilt, post-traumatic stress, and fears of persecution.
