Help a film-maker crowdfund her project
A film by Sydney-based film-maker Saliha Wazirzada is seeking crowd funding. In Bangana: The Sound of Terror, a devastating drone strike annihilates the life of a little girl living along the Pak-Afghan border and deepens its impact on a predator drone operator sitting halfway around the world, conducting his missions via orders on his headset and the monitor he stares at for hours. We get a perspective of the lives of both individuals by highlighting the aspect of PTSD at both ends. The film further explores the human connection and our desire to find HOPE even in the darkest moments of our life.
