When Andrew Briggman (Nat Wolff), a young soldier taking part in the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan, witnesses other recruits killing innocent civilians under the direction of sadistic Sgt. Deeks (Alexander Skarsgård), he considers reporting them to higher-ups. But the heavily armed, increasingly violent platoon becomes suspicious that someone in their ranks has turned on them, and Andrew begins to fear that he’ll be the next target. Writer-director Dan Krauss’ “The Kill Team” — based on the events that inspired his award-winning documentary of the same name, which screened at SLIFF in 2013 — is an urgent and explosive recounting of one of the darkest incidents in the recent history of the American military. The Wrap writes: “Based on the true story of Adam Winfield, ‘The Kill Team’ is both a tense moral thriller and a disheartening account of our country’s actions abroad.”
