Omer Fast: Five Thousand Feet Is BestOmer Fast is the first artist to feature in the new IWM Contemporary programme, with his film 5,000 Feet is the Best getting its London premiere at the Imperial War Museum when it reopens on Monday 29th July 2013. The video artist is known for his war films including his 2003 Spielberg's List and The Casting, commissioned by the Museum Moderner Kunst Vienna where it was also on show in 2007. In his latest film a former drone operator gives his account of how he controlled unmanned planes over Afghanistan and Pakistan from a military base in the Las Vegas Desert, referring to the optimum height from which to fire at targets.
