Flipping Out (2003) - Yoav Shamir

http://www.veoh.com/browse/videos/category/educational/watch/v15641062kb6cctY9

Not the best link. It asks you to install a player to watch the full thing but I can't find anything else with the full version.

quote:

Military service is compulsory in Israel for all Jewish men and women. After their years of service, they are granted a discharge bonus, which many of them use to fly to India to recover from their experiences. Approximately 90 per cent will use drugs during their stay, and each year some two thousand of them will need professional help due to this drug use. The psychotic break with reality they experience is commonly referred to as “flipping out.”

Shot over a period of two years by award-winning documentary filmmaker Yoav Shamir, Flipping Out offers a close-up look at these former soldiers, most of them under the age of 25, as they follow this strange post-military odyssey. ... It also offers a look at the efforts by Israelis to rescue them.
