    Join us for this FREE screening with discussion, coffee and cookies to follow.

NET, Midwest Theater, West Point Community Theater and ITVS invite you to an interactive film experience.

Join us for an evening that will bring live and online audience members together from across Nebraska to discuss the unseen impact of drone warfare on veterans and civilians in the U.S., and internationally.

National Bird follows whistleblowers who, despite possible consequences, are determined to break the silence around one of the most controversial issues of our time: the secret U.S. drone war. The film gives rare insight through the eyes of both survivors and veterans who suffer from PTSD while plagued by guilt over participating in the killing of faceless people in foreign countries.

Guest speakers:

Sonia Kennebeck, director of National Bird

How will it work?

Following the film, a panel discussion will be livestreamed from the Sheldon Theater in Lincoln to all audiences, online and in-person.

Audience members at all locations will be able to submit questions and comments for the panelists to respond to, contributing to a statewide dialogue that will bring a seemingly faraway issue closer to home.
