Fallujah: Art, Healing, and PTSD

U.S. Marine Sergeant Christian Ellis was a machine gunner in Iraq, whose platoon was ambushed, leaving him with a broken back and only one of a few survivors. Ellis returned home to join millions of Americans who struggle with post-traumatic stress disorder. He inspired the first opera about the Iraq war -- "Fallujah" -- with a score composed by Tobin Stokes, a libretto by Iraqi-American Heather Raffo, and a production by the Long Beach Opera. This documentary explores how the experience of war is transformed into a work of art.

Artbound explores the groundbreaking opera "Hopscotch," which unfolded in cars zigzagging throughout Los Angeles, telling a single story of a disappearance across time. Audiences experienced the work in both the intimacy of a car, where artists and audiences shared a confined space, and in a larger central hub, where all the journeys were live-streamed to create a dizzying panorama of life in Los Angeles.
