kill teamComing to PBS’s Independent Lens this coming Monday, January 19: THE KILL TEAM

Dan Krauss’ exposé of war crimes committed by US soldiers premiered at Tribeca in 2013, picking up a jury prize. Other festival play included AFI Docs, San Francisco, Hot Docs, Little Rock, Camden, Vancouver, London, Warsaw, Zagreb, DOK Leipzig, Abu Dhabi, Big Sky, Cucalorus, and Denver. The film was shortlisted for the Best Documentary Oscar.

I previously wrote about the film out of AFI Docs here.

  1. Reblogged this on Words to Document and commented:
    Independent Lens is an excellent series broadcast locally by PBS. This film being shown on the 19th seems both intriguing and provocative–common traits of the films selected for this series.

    Part of what we’ll try to do here is conduct this conversation like a real-life blog–an active conversation that connects internal ideas with the outside, public world–and not just assigned work for a particular class. That means I’ll be posting items of interest that connect to the class and that might feed into your writing and research throughout the semester. You aren’t required to read any of these additional posts–all assigned posting, reading, and commenting is contained on our course schedule–but you’re always welcome to, as well as welcome to comment.
