Description

Investigating “the truth” has never been an easy task. Yet veteran British foreign correspondent Robert Fisk has spent the better part of his career doing just that, from his legendary stint at The Times in the ‘80s to over 30 years with The Independent, where he continues to report on the Middle East. In this immersive tour de force from acclaimed Canadian filmmaker Yung Chang (Up the Yangtze), follow the uncompromising journalist as he fights to capture reality from the frontlines of Syria to Palestinian refugee camps and beyond. A testament to the power of journalism in our current climate, This is Not a Movie earns its place in Chang’s growing repertoire of incisive films that interrogate the most urgent themes of our time.

Stick around after the film for an exclusive bonus interview with Robert Fisk and director Yung Chang, hosted by award-winning journalist Michelle Shepherd.

The film will be available for 48 hours from when you start the stream. Please note streaming is only possible from inside Canada.
