Armadillo is a powerful and compelling documentary that gives the viewer a startling insight into the frontline experiences of young soldiers. Filmmaker Janus Metz and cameraman Lars Skree spent six months following three young Danish recruits, Mads, Daniel and Kim, as they ship out to Afghanistan and are stationed at the ‘Armadillo’ base in Helmand Province. Through chronicling not just the danger and fear experienced in combat, but also the tedium of every day life, Metz seeks to show the enormous effect the war has on these young men.
