Shell Shock

The tormented Vietnam War veteran Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver, the soldiers suffering from PTSS in the documentary Crazy and the ex-tank commander of the animated film Waltz with Bashir share one thing: the urge to tell what happened to them in order to come to grips with it. Eye’s Shell Shock provides a forum for the cinematic representation of violent conflicts and traumatic memories.
