Film Screening of “National Bird”

October 18 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

The Center for Contemporary Arab Studies and the Culture and Politics Program at Georgetown are excited to invite you to a screening of the acclaimed documentary film National Bird at the Leavey Program Room at Georgetown University.

National Bird follows the dramatic journey of three whistleblowers determined to break the silence around one of the most controversial issues of our time: the secret U.S. drone war, which has been waged globally for more than a decade. The film, executive produced by Errol Morris and Wim Wenders, gives rare insight into the program through the eyes of veterans and survivors, to explore the complexities of drone warfare from a human perspective.

We are excited to have Director & Producer Sonia Kennebeck join us for a post-screening discussion moderated by Professor Kate Chandler.

You can find a description and the trailer here http://nationalbirdfilm.com/. Please RSVP at the following link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/screening-of-national-bird-tickets-37538397357

The Leavey Program Room is wheelchair accessible. Requests for additional accommodations can be sent to Azza Altiraifi at aa1967@georgetown.edu.
