Talia Lugacy’s independent feature rips back the veil on the vast enterprise of death that war is and tells the unflinching and painful story of the veterans who return.

War in film is a staple genre in a tremendously lucrative industry. Hollywood inundates our culture with glamorous depictions of wars, both fictional and real. Yet the truth of America’s forever wars, both for the countries invaded and veterans who return home, are rarely explored in depth in popular culture. This Is Not a War Story explores one part of the human toll of US wars through the lens of veterans who return with physical and mental wounds. Writer-director and star Talia Lugacy and actor Eli Wright join The Chris Hedges Report to discuss the film. This is Not a War Story is available to stream and purchase on DVD.
Talia Lugacy is an independent film director, writer, and producer.
Eli Wright is a former Army combat medic who served in the Iraq War. He is now an artist who makes paper from military uniforms.
