The Kill Team is a documentary film about the Maywand District murders during the War in Afghanistan. The film won first place in the category of Best Documentary Feature at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival. The film premieres in theaters and on demand October 25th.
“Wolff stars as Andrew Briggman, a young U.S. soldier who’s sent to Afghanistan in 2009 and witnesses the killing of innocent civilians under the direction of Sergeant Deeks (Skarsgård). When Andrew considers reporting the killings to higher-ups, he feels his own team and leader begin to turn against him, and fears that he might be their next target.
Krauss’ 2013 Kill Team documentary — which was partly based on a 2011 Rolling Stone report — chronicled a rogue band of American soldiers, led by Sgt. Calvin Gibbs, who killed three Afghani citizens. The film centered on Spc. Adam Winfield, a member of Gibbs’ team, who tried to report the crimes and was subsequently charged with murder upon returning to the U.S.”
