Cinematheque at Home: This Is Not a Movie

Plays May 8 - 29
Directed by Yung Chang
2019, Canada, 106 min

Livestream Q&A with director Yung Chang on our Facebook page on Saturday, May 23rd at 3pm!

For more than 40 years, British journalist Robert Fisk has reported on some of the most violent and divisive conflicts in the world. 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.In an era of fake news, when journalists are dubbed “the enemies of the people,” Fisk’s resolve to document reality has become an obsessive war to speak the truth.


Cinematheque at Home – curated by the Cinematheque – will offer new theatrical releases every week which our audiences can pay to stream through our website (by clicking the ‘buy tickets’ button). This is not only an opportunity for our patrons to see new cinema, but is an important way that they can continue to support independent film during this pandemic.

Reviews

A riveting documentary that covers his career of incredibly brave reporting from the most dangerous areas in the world beginning in Belfast, to the Middle East in 1976, the Iran-Iraq war, Israeli-Palestinian conflicts, to the war raging in Syria to this day...he even interviewed Osama Bin Laden three times.
- Jordan Dodd, Cinema Axis.
A thought-provoking meditation on the uses and limitations of war reporting, as much as it is a glowing tribute to the high-profile British investigative journalist.
- Carmen Gray, Modern Times Review
