Wounds of Waziristan highlights the stories of those directly impacted by drone attacks in Pakistan–in their own words.

Since the drone attacks began in Pakistan in 2004, much of the focus has been on the technology. And, although the borderlands between Pakistan and Afghanistan are endlessly debated and declared upon by journalists and pundits, the ordinary people who actually live there are rarely heard from. Wounds of Waziristan records the voices of those who have been either labeled “militants,” or summarily dismissed as “collateral damage.”

Wounds of Waziristan is the first of 2 short documentaries we are producing as part of this project. These docs illustrate the heavy cost borne by those who happen to live on the front-lines of the American “war on terror.” They contest the claims of the Obama administration, and they contest that there is–or can be–anything like a “surgical” strike.
