Our take

Centering aerial videos shot by fighter pilots in conflict zones, Éléonore Weber’s pensive documentary erases the supposed neutrality of the camera, now militarized as a weapon of fear. Placing viewers at an unnerving vantage point, the film is a chillingly close encounter with the reality of war.
