Hollywood is great at war movies. The USA's excursions around the world and the military industrial complex that funds it did not fail to extend itself to the sphere of glitzy entertainment. Alongside the problematic feature films that end up glorifying war and violence, Hollywood also focuses on an aspect of war that one might call "modern" compared to how old the idea of war is. War-related trauma, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) has been pointed to as a strong argument against war in the West in modern times. War trauma is also something rarely spoken about in the context of our Liberation War of 1971.
So much has happened since victory was achieved on December 16, 1971. We rebuilt a country, we were set back time and again, we rebuilt it again, and are now faced with all the usual problems of a young democracy. But the war is still recent, because it was fought by the young'uns. The teenagers and twentysomethings who wrenched freedom from the hands of oppressors are now old men, but their memories linger, and their trauma remains unaddressed, while the world keeps moving on.
