Inclinations Film Club – This Is Not a War Story
Directed by Talia Lugacy
(2021, 112 min)

At CCA, 350 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow G2 3JD

THIS IS NOT A WAR STORY tracks a ragtag group of combat veterans in New York whose anti-war art, poetry and papermaking keep them together, despite the spectre of their friend’s suicide and the ever-crystalizing fact that healing from war is sometimes an impossible mission.

This hybrid narrative film features a supporting cast of Iraq and Vietnam veterans, as well as their original artwork, poetry, and music. It was produced over three years as an ongoing collaboration with a thriving community of veteran artists and papermakers, who begin their work by shredding and pulping their uniforms. Their critique of war, and of their own roles within it, form the apex of the film’s rallying anti-war cry. The film carefully and unblinkingly faces the guilt and the moral injury that leads so many veterans to suicide.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A and discussion with the film’s director Talia Lugacy.
