USA, 1946. Director: John Huston
Post-screening discussion with Ramon Kubicek
In 1945, the US military was concerned that prejudice was hindering the reintegration into the work force of soldiers who had returned from the war suffering from mental illness. They instructed John Huston, a Captain in the U.S. Army’s Signal Corp-based film unit and one of the most eminent directors in their ranks, to make a film combating this problem.
