The Imperial War Museum has recently launched a new contemporary programme of exhibitions and events; it will showcase work by artists and photographers as they respond to the theme of war and conflict.

The first artist to feature in IWM Contemporary is Omer Fast; born in Jerusalem and currently living in Berlin, he has presented a thirty minute documentary on the subject of drone warfare. The film is free to watch and can bee seen at the museum until the 29th September.

5,000 Feet is the Best is based around an interview given by a US soldier who shared his experiences as an operator of an unmanned plane designed to target areas in Afghanistan and Pakistan. He discusses the psychological impact of engaging the enemy from thousands of miles away and how the use of drones is changing both the politics and principles of war. The documentary will also include re-enactments of his personal accounts, and be accompanied by an artist talk on the 28th September, in which Fast will discuss the film in the wider context of his work.
