Saturday, July 30 In Afghanistan, a shadow war is being waged both in the sky and on the ground; a war whose soldiers are invisible, ruthless and almost entirely unaccountable. This is the age of the drone and Afghanistan is the experimental field on which the ethics and possibilities of a deadly new technology are being determined. This documentary follows three former drone operators as they struggle to come to terms with the murderous effects of their actions. 1:30pm. ACMI, Federation Square.
Film screening: Fire at Sea.
Date: Sun 31 Jul, 1:30pm
Sunday, July 31 Master documentary maker Gianfranco Rosi's wrenching, humane and timely survey of Europe's refugee crisis. Swapping large canvases for an intimate, quiet portrait of a people wrestling with the impossible and the incomprehensible, Rosi's film is filled with startling beauty and quiet humour – a necessary antidote to the inhumanity and the hysteria, and essential viewing for an Australia where the lives of the world's desperate have come to count for so very little. 1:30pm. Comedy Theatre, 240 Exhibition St, City.
