CROSSING THE LINE
Wed 04 Nov 2015
An innovative season of film events, documentaries, shorts and artists films to test ethical and physical boundaries and reveal astonishing stories of achievement.
Norway / Pakistan / USA, 58mins, 2014, dir. Tonje Hessen Schei
An evening of documentary and debate revealing the lines of data, technology and power at work under our shores and in skies beyond.
Drone presents a chilling and revealing study of warfare by remote control, launching the viewer into the CIA drone war in Pakistan. In a conflict acted out thousands of miles away from its targets, it is a tale of soldiers recruited at gaming conventions, faceless targets and killing with joysticks
A thought provoking, cutting-edge insight into the biggest and most controversial military revolution of our age.
Before the evenings feature documentary, join us for a brief exploration of the fibre optic cable network below our shorelines. Artist filmmaker Richard Broomhalls short film Brean Sands presents a visual audio study of fibre optic ownership, the regulation of corporate and national power structures and how an individual can have more autonomy by understanding the forces around them.
Are drones the necessary requirement of the war against terrorism or a ruthless tool to enact an indiscriminate killing program? Our evenings feature film explores the issues of modern warfare.
Join Richard Broomhall and lecturer of International & Military Law Dr Aurel Sari for a dynamic debate of the themes raised in these thought provoking pieces.
