Let There Be Light
This controversial documentary made for the Government,directed by John Huston, concerned itself with the rehabilitation of returning World War II soldiers suffering psychosomatic disabilities from the effects of battle fatigue. Classified as top secret, the film was banned for many years and declassified in 1980. Huston brought a team of Signal Corps cameramen to Mason General Hospital on Long Island, New York, and their cameras revealed that these psychosomatic disabilities were not'symptoms of abnormalities, but the response of sound minds that had experienced the unendurable. This is considered one of the greatest films ever made dealing with the impact of war on the human spirit. A rediscovered classic!
USA, 1946, B&W, 58 minutes.
