Documentary - The Kill Team - Presented by Karl Kaltenthaler, PhD of the University of Akron

The Kill Team goes behind closed doors to tell the riveting story of Specialist Adam Winfield, a twenty-one year-old infantryman in Afghanistan, who attempted with the help of his father, to alert the military to heinous war crimes his platoon was committing. Tragically, his father's pleas for help went unheeded. Once Adam's fellow soldiers got wind of what he'd done, they threatened to silence him—permanently. Forced to choose between his conscience and his own survival, Adam found himself drawn into a moral abyss, faced with a split-second decision that would change his life forever. Karl Kaltenthaler, a professor of political science at the Univerisity of Akron, will introduce the film.
