In this amazing documentary, director John Huston explores the diagnosis and treatment of what used to be called “battle fatigue” or “shell shock” among returning servicemen. This condition is now know as PTSD – post traumatic stress disorder. “Let There Be Light” wasn’t released to the public for 30 years for obvious reasons, but it’s a story is still highly relevant today.

    1. It’s pretty amazing isn’t it? I’m not entirely sure some of it wasn’t scripted but that doesn’t lessen the impact and ideas in the film especially considering when it was made. I’m not sure how but Katrina came across it a few days ago and showed it to me.
