Melancholic drone
Year
2015
Duration
6 min 53 s

During his last morning in Belgrade, a military drone reflects on his wasted existence as a drone out of combat, while flying on autopilot to a couple having sex, a route his previous operator would take to spy on them. The drone is learning the importance of euphemisms in military language, and increasingly sees his human operator as machine-like. The drone realizes he is free.
