David Verbeek’s film “Full Contact” highlights the story of a drone operator who tries to deal with his guilt after an airstrike goes wrong. It is an unsettling look at a modern man caught in a puzzle that may or may not be of his own making.
The official film synopsis reads: “‘Full Contact’ drills into the world — and deep into the psyche — of a drone navigator who, from his base in the Nevada desert, conducts surgical missile strikes against targets in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Maintaining a distance from his targets that is psychological as well as geographic, Ivan (Grégoire Colin) walks away from these daily missions and spends his off-hours in strip clubs. Until, one day, he hits the wrong location, triggering within him a wave of guilt that sends him reeling into the arms of both a military psychologist and a Vegas stripper. But this is just the start of a psychic odyssey that is unpredictable, moving, and illuminating.”
