'Who's Going to Question It?': How U.S. Soldiers Murdered Afghan Civilians
Jul 24, 2014
Three of the soldiers interviewed, including Winfield, Jeremy Morlock, and Andrew Holmes, were ultimately sent to prison for premeditated attacks on innocent Afghans. The documentary follows Winfield's trial at length, as Krauss considers the roles that conflict, violence, and moral ambiguity played in the "kill team" crimes. For a detailed account of this story, I recommend reading Mark Boal's exposé in Rolling Stone and Luke Mogelson's piece in the New York Times Magazine.
The Kill Team, which won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival, opens in select theaters on July 25.
