Description

Please join us for the Portland premiere of the stunning new film NATIONAL BIRD on Friday, April 21 at 6 pm, followed by discussion with Leah Bolger, former U.S. Navy Commander and first female president of Veterans for Peace! From legendary executive producers Wim Wenders and Errol Morris, NATIONAL BIRD follows the dramatic journey of three whistleblowers who are determined to break the silence around one of the most controversial current affairs issues of our time: the secret U.S. drone wars. Director Sonia Kennebeck’s first film gives rare insight into the drone program through the eyes of veterans and survivors, connecting their stories as never seen before in a documentary. "With stealth and elegance, Kennebeck brings these alarming truths to light." -- The Guardian
