Synopsis:
"/Waking from a dream as she slept comfortably in a remote Kurdish 
village in Northeastern Iran, Karla Hnsen stared wide-eyed at the 
ceiling.  Across the border in Afghanistan, unmanned aerial vehicles 
(drones), controlled by American pilots sitting in front of video 
screens inside the U.S. were dropping bombs on the poorest of 
Afghanistan's poor.  Hundreds of children, beautiful children, like 
those who welcomed her every day during her visit to Iran, had already 
perished. On that night, Hansen made a promise to herself.  She would 
make a film to document the effects of the drones through the eyes of 
innocent children and families with no place left to run.
 
/*Silent Screams*/ deftly interweaves the lives of Iranian, Afghani and 
Pakistani villagers with those of America's forgotten poor. 
Director-producer Hansen ties the plight of defenseless civilian victims 
abroad with the hardships of countless Americans whose vital needs 
remain unmet as a result of America's spiraling military spending./"
