The PBS ‘Frontline’ war on terror doc Kill/Capture (pictured) has gained interest from territories around the world following the killing of Osama bin Laden.
‘Frontline’ accelerated work on Kill/Capture, which aired in the U.S. on May 10, and PBS International recently released it to the marketplace in order to get the timely doc out.
Kill/Capture (1 x 53 minutes, HD) is the result of a six-month investigation by ‘Frontline’ which went inside the military’s “kill/capture” policy to discover the program’s impact and its consequences.
International broadcasters that have already picked up Kill/Capture include Channel 4 (UK, Kill/Capture’s co-producer), SBS (Australia), SVT (Sweden), SRC (French Canada), TVI (Portugal), VRT (Belgium), YLE (Finland), PTS (Taiwan), TVN (Poland), TV3 (Spain-Catalonia) and Teleamazonas (Ecuador).
The doc features interviews with General Petraeus and his senior commanders, as well as rare footage with Taliban leaders and fighters. Kill/Capture also tells the story from the perspective of Afghan civilians.
‘Frontline’ producers are Dan Edge (The Wounded Platoon) and Stephen Grey (Extraordinary Rendition).
