This hybrid narrative film features a supporting cast of Iraq and Vietnam veterans, as well as their original artwork, poetry, and music – and was produced over three years as an ongoing collaboration with a thriving community of veterans. Sam Adegoke, Talia Lugacy, Danny Ramirez and Frances Fisher round out the cast. Winner of the Audience Award for Best Feature Narrative at San Francisco Indie Fest, “‘This is Not a War Story’ boasts stunning acting, fantastic music, a heartfelt plot, and impeccable directing” (Film Threat)
Talia Lugacy directed the film “Descent” which premiered in competition at the Tribeca Film Festival, then released theatrically by Warner Independent. Despite an NC-17 rating “Descent” was championed by The New York Times as “essential to see, a vividness never seen in an American film.” Talia is a full-time Assistant Professor of Screen Studies at The New School in NYC. Her production company Acoustic Pictures is committed to humanistic filmmaking with a minimal environmental footprint.
