Tickets and Reservations
A poignant drama directed by and starring Talia Lugacy follows a traumatized Marine as she tries to connect with a group of fellow veterans at home. The film tracks a ragtag group of combat veterans in New York whose anti-war art, poetry, and paper-making keep them together, despite the specter of their friend’s suicide and the ever-crystalizing fact that healing from war is sometimes an impossible mission. Through the process of shredding uniforms, writing poems, exposing their art to the public, and telling stories in confidence within their group, the veterans in THIS IS NOT A WAR STORY find a way to give their suffering voice and clarity. Their critique of war, and of their own roles within it, form the apex of the film’s rallying anti-war cry.
There will be a Q&A following the film screening with director and actor Talia Lugacy, and veteran artist activists Eli Wright, Walt Nygard, and Jan Barry.
