GUNS FOR HIRE -- AFGHANISTAN is a highly topical 46 min. documentary about the secretive world of private military companies.

One of the highlights of GUNS FOR HIRE -- AFGHANISTAN is a unique interview in Kabul's Polecharki jail with the infamous American prisoner Jack Idema -- an ex Marine Special Forces soldier who turned rogue. Jack was hunting for Bin Ladin in the hope of winning the 2 million dollars U.S. award offered for Bin Laden's head by the Bush Administration. Eventually, Afghan authorities arrested Idema on charges of kidnapping people and interrogating them in a private prison.
