Paul Katis – director – Kilo Two Bravos
Paul Katis constructed an astonishing first feature, the story of a group of British soldiers in the War in Afghanistan. There is no room for imagination or fictionalisation of the events that are precisely reported in the film.
Straight to the point, dry and pressing, at a high pace and never compromising, KILO TWO BRAVO is a war movie with a completely new perspective, and an intensity that will keep the audience glued to their seats: reality can be more terrifying than any fiction.
KILO TWO BRAVO: Afghanistan, Kajaki region. The paratrooper squad Kilo Two Bravo is on a mission to neutralize a Taliban road bloc. The platoon is exploring a dry riverbed that turned into a gorge, when the soldiers are ambushed by the remnants of a distant war: the landmines left by the Soviets during their invasion in the early 1980s are buried all around them, making it impossible for the troop to move out of fear of triggering a bloodshed.
