                Odysseus in America is a documentary film based on psychiatrist Dr. Jonathan Shay’s ground breaking book. The book and the film reveal the parallels in Odysseus’ epic ten-year journey home from Troy— sung by Homer 3,000 years ago — to events in the lives of today’s American combat veterans. The ancients, the film argues, understood the psychological impact of combat on all those who fight, survive, and return home. Trailer features: Dr. Jonathan Shay

                  This documentary, developed as an undergraduate thesis film by director Charles Berkowitz, is based on the groundbreaking book, "Achilles in Vietnam : Combat Trauma and the Undoing of Character", by Dr. Jonathan Shay. In it, Shay examines the psychological devastation of war by comparing the soldiers of Homer's Iliad with Vietnam veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. Although the Iliad was written twenty-seven centuries ago it has much to teach about combat trauma, as do the more recent, compelling voices and experiences of Vietnam veterans.
