Battles Beyond the Horizon
a film by Kari Barber and Nico Colombant
Since the bow and arrow humans have been physically distancing themselves from their actions in war. Now with drones and artificial intelligence, U.S. government attacks are conducted across the world. Decisions are increasingly being made with humans further removed from “the loop.”
There have been thousands of civilian deaths due to U.S military drone strikes, including hundreds of children. What’s next for targeted killing many find even scarier.
The documentary, Battles Beyond the Horizon, weaves the protests of anti-drone activists and the history of the U.S. military drone program with expert interviews about the ethics of a future with increasingly more robotic warfare.

About the Filmmakers:
Kari Barber and Nico Colombant are on the faculty of the Reynolds School of Journalism at the University of Nevada, Reno.

While teaching and raising three boys in Reno, they are also outstanding documentary filmmakers. Their recent work includes Struggle and Hope, about all-Black towns in Oklahoma and an animated short film about grief after losing another son Zinedine.

They have filmed our anti-drone protests at Creech Air Force Base numerous times over the years in preparation for this upcoming drone documentary, Battles Beyond the Horizon.
