GRITtv: Janus Metz: Armadillo, Kill Teams, and the Savagery of War

"I think it's an identity project that's been given to you, you can go out there and play the hero in the big scene, inscribe yourself in this political rhetoric about the situation," says Janus Metz, who went with a team of Danish soldiers to Afghanistan to make his documentary, Armadillo. The film follows the soldiers as they gradually become hardened to war and even commit acts that seem truly immoral. Janus joined Laura in studio for a conversation about the process of going to war with the soldiers and the reactions to his film.
