About this work

Description

This film depicts a variety of neurological syndromes "resulting from captivity" observed in British and Indian P.O.Ws repatriated from Japanese prison camps in south-east Asia after the end of the Second World War. Starting with a dramatic music score which continues throughout (highly unusual in a medical film), a narrator outlines the clinical signs and symptoms which are depicted, which include contractures and deformities of the hands; local anaesthesias; defects of vision and optic atrophy; loss of knee and ankle reflexes; facial nerve weakness, and dressing apraxia. One man uses a specially adjusted walking chair. Taken at 145 I.G.B.H. (IT) Hospital Town, Bangalore, India.
