The Kandahar Massacre is considered one of the most severe war crime blamed on a member of the U.S. Armed Forces since the war in Vietnam. In the early morning hours of March 11, 2012, U.S. Staff Sergeant Robert Bales allegedly killed 16 Afghan civilians in villages near the military camp where he was based.
2470media's Lela Ahmadzai travelled to Afghanistan and spoke to the survivors who lost their closest relatives in the night of Bales' riot. The product of her journey is a documentary that moves the focus away from the suspect and tells the story of the victims whose voices, so far, have remained publicly unheard.
