Films For Food returns with a screening of the critically acclaimed documentary ‘National Bird’ + short film ‘The Unknown’.
Instead of paying for a ticket for this event just bring a full bag of non-perishable food for entry and the food will go to First Love Foundation Food Bank in East London.
This documentary follows the dramatic journey of three whistleblowers who are determined to break the silence around one of the most controversial current affairs issues of our time: the secret U.S. drone war. At the center of the film are three U.S. military veterans. Plagued by guilt over participating in the killing of faceless people in foreign countries, they decide to speak out publicly, despite the possible consequences.
‘If we can eliminate enemy threats without placing boots on a battlefield, then why not do so? That’s one of the unspoken questions raised by this elegantly unsettling documentary’. Jeannette Catsoulis The NYTimes
‘Making her feature debut as a documentary director, investigative journalist Sonia Kennebeck focuses on three former operatives in the U.S. military’s controversial drone warfare program’. Michael O’Sullivan Washington Post
