Armadillo

Armadillo

ARMADILLO is a upfront account of growing cynicism and adrenaline addiction for soldiers in war. Mads and Daniel are about the very first mission in Helmand, Afghanistan. Their platoon is headquartered at Camp Armadillo fighting battles that were tough against the Taliban. The soldiers are not there to help the people, but as fighting gets tougher and operations hairy, Mads, Daniel and their buddies become suspicious, widening the gap between themselves and the Afghan civilisation. Mistrust and paranoia occur causing alienation and disillusion. Armadillo is a journey in to the prince's mind and also a film on the narrative of war and man, staged in Afghanistan in its own variant.
