For more than 40 years, journalist Robert Fisk (“the most famous foreign correspondent in Britain" - NY Times) has reported on some of the most violent and divisive conflicts in the world: Northern Ireland, the Balkans, and Syria. In an era of fake news, when journalists are dubbed “the enemies of the people,” Fisk’s resolve to document reality urges us to confront the war on truth.

Yung Chang’s This Is Not a Movie captures Fisk in 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.

Presented by Blue Ice Docs and The NFB.
