CUFF DOCS PREVIEW: THE KILL TEAM

79 min./USA/2013

Directed by Dan Krauss

Screens: November 23, 4:30 p.m.

From Oscar-nominated director Dan Krauss comes the story of Adam Winfield, a young soldier in Afghanistan who attempted to alert the military to horrific atrocities being committed by U.S. soldiers and who then himself became a target of one of the largest war crimes investigations in U.S. 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. The film dips in and out of Winfield’s unfolding legal story to reveal piece-by-piece the increasingly devastating narrative in Afghanistan. With an astonishing degree of candour and articulateness, these soldiers describe a series of increasingly weighty psychological quagmires, each exploring the hazy morality of war.
