For more than 40 years, journalist Robert Fisk has reported on some of the most violent and divisive conflicts in the world. Yung Chang’s documentary 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.
The act of translating raw experience into incisive and passionate dispatches requires the determination to see things first-hand and the tenacity to say what others won’t. Often respected, at times despised, Fisk is a bold truth-teller, aiming to share the point of view of suffering victims despite political enemies he makes in the process. But in spite of the danger, he has continued to cover stories as they unfold, talking directly to the people involved. In an era of fake news, when journalists are dubbed “enemies of the people,” Fisk’s resolve to document reality has become an obsessive war to speak the truth.
