Berkeley filmmaker Dan Krauss makes movies about people facing moral quandaries. His Oscar and Emmy-nominated documentary short, "The Death of Kevin Carter," examines the suicide of a controversial Pulitzer-Prize winning photographer. Krauss' feature documentary, "The Kill Team," looks at a soldier's dilemma to protect or turn in his platoon when they start murdering Afghan civilians. Krauss' newest film, "Extremis," takes the audience inside an Oakland hospital's Intensive Care Unit where patients, doctors and families must determine what to do when patients are facing end-of-life decisions.
