Lisa Ling, a former technical sergeant in? the U.S. Air Force, is featured in the heralded documentary National Bird, which, according to The Washington Post, is “artful, profoundly unsettling.” In an article for The Guardian (http://bit.ly/2EoYdOU), Ling noted how little the public knew about the U.S. drone program and its consequences.

A film produced by the Interfaith Network on Drone Warfare for use in congregations will be screened along with a half-hour version of National Bird
