In conjunction with the exhibit “Memory and Resistance: The Work of Joseph DeLappe,” the Sonoma Valley Museum of Art on May 18 is presenting the film, “Unmanned: America’s Drone Wars,” from documentary director Robert Greenwald.
Dorothy R. Santos, essayist for the Delappe exhibition and digital-culture savant, will introduce the film.
“Unmanned: America’s Drone Wars,” is the eighth full-length feature documentary from Greenwald, known for such films as “Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch’s War on Journalism” and “Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price.” His latest film investigates the impact of U.S. drone strikes at home and abroad through more than 70 separate interviews, including a former American drone operator who shares what he has witnessed in his own words, Pakistani families mourning loved ones and seeking legal redress, investigative journalists pursuing the truth, and top military officials warning against blowback from the loss of innocent life.
“Drone Wars” screen at 7 p.m. on Thursday at the museum.
Tickets are $7 museum members or $10 general admission.
The series concludes June 10 with “War Games,” the hit movie about a computer trying to win at global thermonuclear war, with only the 1983-era adorableness of Matthew Broderick and Ally Sheedy to stop it.
