A documentary project
Wounds of Waziristan highlights the stories of those directly impacted by drone attacks in Pakistan–in their own words.
During his speech on May 23rd this year, President Obama claimed that he was “haunted” by the lost of civilian life from drone attacks. What does it mean to be haunted? WOUNDS records the voices of those directly impacted by the bombing to explore this question.
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 records the voices of those who have been either labeled “militants,” or summarily dismissed as “collateral damage.”
