Armadillo poster anatomical heart grenade

Armadillo poster anatomical heart grenade detail

Armadillo is a documentary film about Danish soldiers in the war in Afghanistan.  Director Janus Metz speaks of Armadillo as being a documentary of ambivalence, “trying to create peace with one hand and war with the other.”  This theme of ambivalence is depicted in the documentary poster as a grenade and anatomical heart fused together.  While I can’t say that it’s the best rendering of an anatomical hear that I’ve seen, it’s certainly a nice concept that differentiates from many other war movies/documentaries out there.
