Happy You’re Alive

Directed by: Hilla Medalia
60 Minutes, 2010, Drama

Happy You’re Alive documents the tragedy of battle in the West Bank and the lasting effects of war on two men, as they struggle to put their combat experiences behind them. Their difficult return to civilian life after the terror of the battlefield has been captured on film over a span of more than two years. Each man deals with the haunting memories of war differently, with one turning to music and one to therapy; both stories show that the will and strength to survive can be found even in the face of the most unimaginable pain.
