Presented by Independent Lens | PBS and East Tennessee PBS in partnership with the Capitol Theatre: A preview of the film is available at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZeF_WHEV7gA&feature=youtu.be

“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.”

Screening is free and open to the public, followed by a town-hall style discussion.
