Janus Metz’s Emmy Award-winning documentary Armadillo is now available for free streaming on POV’s website and the PBS video apps.

In 2009, Janus Metz and cameraman Lars Skree accompanied a platoon of Danish soldiers to Armadillo, a combat operations base in Afghanistan. For six months, often under fire, they captured the lives of the young soldiers fighting the Taliban in a hostile and confusing environment. Winner of the Critics’ Week Grand Prix at Cannes, Armadillo is one of the most dramatic and candid accounts of combat to come out of Afghanistan.
