Unseen Skies


Yaara Bou Melhem’s documentary Unseen Skies explores the evolution of state and corporate surveillance. Her docu-journey follows Trevor Paglen, one of the 21st century’s most visionary artists, on one of his most audacious projects to date – the launching of an artwork into space to show that our skies are more than the exclusive playground of the military-industrial complex. Or are they?
