The Kill Team
Harkins Sedona 6 - Theatre 5 Thu, Feb 27, 2014 6:15 PM
From Oscar-nominated director Dan Krauss comes a story about a young soldier in Afghanistan who attempted to alert the military to horrific atrocities being committed by US soldiers, and who then himself became a target of one of the largest war crimes investigations in American history.

With extraordinary access to the soldiers who were convicted and the evidence used against them, this film takes us inside a story that was largely impenetrable to the media.

In early 2010, a group of American soldiers in southern Afghanistan–bored, frightened, angry, and primed to explode–intentionally killed civilians, planting weapons on their victims to stage the incidents as “good shoots.” One of the group, the platoon sergeant, collected fingers as trophies. They called themselves, “The Kill Team.”

Specialist Adam Winfield alerted the military to the killings through his father, but his warnings went unheeded.
