    Legendary anti-war photographer and author of Viet Nam Inc, Philip Jones Griffiths, gives the interview of a lifetime only 48 hours before he died in at his home in London on March 19, 2008. With a voice impassioned by courage and enriched by his legacy of love for people and for taking real pictures of real people, Philip imparts his final words of wisdom on the subject of photography and sexuality. Rare interviews with iconic photographers and people who loved him bring the most eloquent and clear headed anti-war photographer back to life. This movie is an hommage to being real in a time when documentary photography has fallen off the pedestal. This is the way and these are the words that matter.

      For all of us, the memories won't ever fade away. I was in Budapest on the morning of September 11, 2001, assisting a team of human rights activists in investigating conditions in a psychiatric hospital where patients had at one time been confined in dog-sized cages. It was on a television at the back of a ward that I saw what I thought, at first, was a scene from a tasteless movie — the north tower furiously burning. I managed to return to New York four days later. But deeply troubled by both the terrible loss of life and the prospect of future wars, I refused assignments. Finally, my wife and partner, Janine Altongy, persuaded me to accompany her to Lower Manhattan. Feeling the guilt of someone who hadn’t been doing his job, I set to work on what would, in time, become a book. “It was bewildering,” I later wrote. “All the gloom, the acrid odor, the police blocking our every step, the smoking ruins that reminded me of Hiroshima, Sarajevo, Beirut. In the midst of the impersonal vastness of Manhattan hung thousands of portraits of people who had disappeared in the attacks.” The missing-person posters weighed heavily on our minds. For the next four months, we walked the streets of Lower Manhattan, and peered from a rooftop into the piles of rubble that were still exuding an alien, sour yellow smoke. We interviewed families who were in mourning and attended memorial services and funerals for fallen firefighters. It was at the funeral of Firefighter Vernon Cherry that Janine made a sound recording of the drums and bagpipes that speaks, perhaps even more than the pictures, of the loss of life on that devastating day in September, 13 years ago.

        It was 2006; the war in Iraq was in its fourth year. No weapons of mass destruction had been found. There were reports of tens of thousands of dead and injured Iraqis, of more than 2,000 dead American soldiers, of rising rates of depression and suicide among American military personnel. All the while Congress and the media debated what the conflict was costing America in image and treasure, the president in popularity. Troubled by the public’s growing indifference to the tragedy of Iraq and critical of my own inaction, I set out on what would be a years-long journey to document the lives of Americans who’d been profoundly affected by the war. Carlos Arredondo is a broken man, a man who can’t help but blame himself for the death of his Marine son; Tomas Young, a paralyzed veteran full of rage; Kimberly Rivera, an aggrieved soldier who, instead of returning to Iraq, makes the fateful decision to defect to Canada; Michael Harmon, a combat veteran who has come home, but to a place he feels he no longer belongs; Nelida Bagley, a fiercely protective mother still clinging to the belief that her brain-injured son can be healed, isn’t gone from her forever. War Is Personal is a study of lives in upheaval, a chronicle of greatly differing experiences and perceptions of what it means to go to war, to wait, to mourn, to remember, to live on when those that you love are gone.
