UAVs on screen

I’ve just seen the trailer for the upcoming (in Britain at least) war film Good Kill, which focuses on the experience of an American UAV pilot in the US’ War on Terror.

While UAVs – or drones – have been seen in plenty of films before, this is amongst the first movies to put them centre stage and confront what they mean in modern military operations.

As you can see from the trailer below, it looks as if it will cover the psychological impact of these operations on those who conduct them (as could be expected from the producers of The Hurt Locker), as well as make comment on the ethical and moral dimension of fighting wars remotely.

One to be added to the list of upcoming films!
