Special Screening & Discussion: “EYE IN THE SKY” with director Gavin Hood

  • March 10, 2016

Overview

The moral implications of drone-strikes is now the setting for a feature film.  Through remote surveillance and on-the-ground intel, a UK-based military officer in command of a top-secret drone operation discovers that his targets are planning a suicide bombing. The mission escalates from “capture” to “kill.” But as American pilot Steve Watts is about to engage, a nine-year old girl enters the kill zone, triggering an international dispute reaching the highest levels of the United States and British governments.

Join us for a screening of the film and a post-screening discussion with director Gavin Hood (Tsosti, Ender’s Game) covering this timely and important film about modern warfare that mirrors real life moral dilemmas.

Eye in the Sky, starring Helen Mirren, Aaron Paul, and Alan Rickman, will be released in select theaters on March 11th.
