Stress

Germany, USA | 2018 | documentary | 83 min. Documentary competition

How are veterans of recent wars trying to find themselves in civil life conditions? How does their presence influence the functioning of the family or the entire American society? After their return from Afghanistan or Iraq, James, Joe, Justin, Mike and Torrie tend to their physical and mental wounds. The film is a recording of not only their traumatic memories but also their alienation from reality. It evokes suggestive images of places and situations that must be tamed once again.
