"I'm 22 years old and I must have killed 30 people. The same thing that you were given badges for over in Iraq, you would be considered a serial killer over here, " says one soldier. "That is a very weird thought in your head, late at night."
A new documentary, Beer is Cheaper than Therapy, takes aim at the mental scars of war and paints a raw and haunting portrait of Killeen, Texas. This Army town is adjacent to the largest military installation in the U.S. , Fort Hood, and has a shockingly high rate of depression, alcoholism and suicide.
Dutch Filmmaker Simone de Vries wanted to know what is it really like to come home and be considered a hero when you might feel very different inside?
There will be Q&A with the director and people featured in the film afterwards.
Tickets are $8 and are available on Alamo's website at http://drafthouse.com/movies/beer_is_cheaper_than_therapy/austin
Proceeds from the film go to the Fisher House, which provides a free home away from home for military families and military personnel during a medical crisis.
