Thursday, April 13, 2017, 8pm, Circolo ARCI Arcobaleno (via Pullino 1, Metro Garbatella)

 

the award-winning documentary
 

 
The Kill Team
 

 
(Dan Krauss, USA, 2014, 79 min.)

                                                     

Fact: The major cause of death among U.S. troops in Afghanistan is suicide.

This film examines the immense psychological pressure troops there face,
how sadistic war crimes become just a game for many of the soldiers and
how trying to stop their crimes makes a fellow soldier... the enemy.


More than a film about our bloody, 16-year-long occupation of Afghanistan,
The Kill Team examines one's man's need to come clean and the price he paid.

4. Some background material from Rolling Stone 
  



The magazine Rolling Stone sent a reporter to Afghanistan to see first hand the conditions that the soldiers of the “Kill Team” – and, in fact, all U.S. soldiers stationed there – are subjected to. The conclusion of the inquiry, in a nutshell, is the phrase General Sherman made famous: “War is hell.”
