The first documentary ever chosen to compete in the International Critics' Week at Cannes (where it won the grand prize), Janus Metz's Armadillo follows a platoon of Danish soldiers on a six-month tour of Afghanistan in 2009. An intimate, visually stunning account of both the horror and growing cynicism of modern warfare, the film premiered at the top of the box office in Denmark, provoking a national debate over government policy and the rules of engagement.

"An astonishing leap forward for nonfiction storytelling." - Eric Hynes, The Village Voice

"A mesmerizing, beautiful and terrifying documentary that can stand among the greatest war movies ever made." - Salon.com

Armadillo will be broadcast on PBS on August 30th at 10 pm as part of the POV documentary series. Click here for more information.
