This fascinating, intimate portrait of British journalist Robert Fisk may be about a single journalist, but it’s also an intelligent and valuable documentary about how -- now more than ever -- credible, reliable journalism in general is crucial to understanding our tumultuous world. Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Yung Chang (Up The Yangtze) follows Fisk’s storied and often dangerous career, from his early coverage of the ‘Troubles’ in Northern Ireland to the various, ongoing, and intense Middle East conflicts from the Israeli-Palestinian tensions to recent events in Syria. Despite what could be described as decades of disillusioning world events, many of which he has covered up close, Robert Fisk remains passionate and committed to journalism, and is an articulate commentator on how knowledge and awareness is produced in what can often be very and sometimes dangerously biased media.
