The DocYard presents ARMADILLO – TUESDAY FEBRUARY 1, 8pm at the Brattle Theatre – this is only the film’s second time screening in the US
Directed by Danish filmmaker Janus Metz, ARMADILLO journeys to a UK-Danish military base in Afghanistan. Metz follows the soldiers in their peace-keeping mission in the region, and discovers the real tensions that such missions inspire. This must-see documentary takes you to the front lines of “peace-keeping” to show you the battles soldiers wage there. (Critics Week’s Grand Prize, Cannes Film Festival)
