Through the Lens: The Kill Team

Sep 2, 2014

We continue our Through the Lens series Tuesday with "The Kill Team." A U.S. Army platoon made headlines in 2010 after if was learned they'd murdered several innocent Afghan civilians. In his film, director Dan Krauss examines those events and their fallout through the story of Adam Winfield, one of the guilty soldiers. Winfield tried to alert the military of the atrocity he and his comrades committed. His warnings went unheeded and Winfield found himself the target of a massive war crimes investigation. Krauss joins us to discuss his film, which explores the intersection of morality, conflict, and violence.

Wednesday, September 3, RadioWest and the Utah Film Center are screening The Kill Team at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center in Salt Lake City at 7 p.m. It's part of our Through the Lens film series. Doug Fabrizio will host a Q&A with director Dan Krauss following the screening. The event is free and open to the public.

Dan Krauss directed the Emmy and Academy Award-nominated film The Death of Kevin Carter. He has acted as Director of Photography on numerous films. He directed, produced, and photographed his new documentary film The Kill Team.
