This is an amazing reality documentary made in 1946 by the legendary film-maker John Huston. It is unscripted sessions with soldiers from World War II who were suffering from what we now call PTSD but was then described as “shell-shock.”
In addition to the heart-breaking discussions, it also shows mixed-race servicemen together, ground-breaking for its’ time. Of course the Army ultimately suppressed the original film until 1980, re-releasing a heavily-edited version using actors instead.
An amazing and sad view into the effects of war that have remain unchanged since Homer’s time.
