A new documentary that investigates the impact of U.S. drone strikes premiered Wednesday (Oct. 30) in New York City.

The film, called “Unmanned: America’s Drone Wars,” made its debut Wednesday evening at the Sunshine Landmark Theater in Manhattan. The documentary features Rafiq ur Rehman, a primary school teacher from a mountainous region in northeast Pakistan, whose 67-year-old mother was killed by a drone strike in October 2012. Two of Rehman’s children were also injured in the attack.

Earlier this week, Rehman and his children, Nabila and Zubair, traveled to Washington, D.C., to testify before Congress, in what was the first time U.S. lawmakers heard directly from victims of an alleged American drone strike. Rehman and his family were invited to speak on Capitol Hill by Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.).
