This Is Not a Movie

Presented by CW Xteriors, this powerful documentary profiles the groundbreaking reporting of legendary foreign correspondent and author Robert Fisk who has reported on some of the most violent and divisive conflicts in the world. Canadian Director Yung Chang captures Fisk in relentless action — feet on the ground, notebook in hand, as he travels into landscapes devastated by war, ferreting out the facts and firing reports back home to reach an audience of millions. In an era of fake news, when journalists are dubbed “the enemies of the people,” Fisk’s determination to challenge the centres of power, to witness reality on the ground in real time, has become an obsessive war to speak the truth.
