From Executive Producers Wim Wenders and Errol Morris and director/investigative journalist Sonia Kennebeck, National Bird follows the harrowing journey of three U.S. military veteran whistleblowers determined to break the silence around America's secret drone war.

With unprecedented access to first-hand information about the U.S. drone program through on-the-record sources, National Bird introduces us to Heather, a former drone imagery analyst who never left American soil but witnessed countless deaths and now suffers from PTSD; Daniel, a signals intelligence analyst-turned-activist who is now being investigated for espionage; and Lisa, whose guilt over her participation in the drone program and determination to reveal the truth leads her to Afghanistan, where she is confronted with stories of a horrendous incident.

National Bird gives rare insight into America's drone operations through the eyes of veterans and survivors, connecting their stories as never seen before in a documentary.

National Bird had its world premiere at the 2016 Berlin International Film Festival and was a hit at the 2016 Tribeca and San Francisco film festivals and Sheffield Doc/Fest among others.


Includes a post-film conversation with Director/Investigative Journalist Sonia Kennebeck, Producer Ines Hofmann Kanna and Protagonist Lisa Ling moderated by Indiewire's Editor-at-Large, Anne Thompson.
