The Kingston Canadian Film Festival presents THIS IS NOT A MOVIE
Director: Yung Chang
Runtime: 106 minutes
One of Canada’s foremost documentary filmmakers thanks to successes like UP THE YANGTZE (KCFF’08), Yung Chang returns with what may be his most compelling and timely work to date. The tragic history and daunting political realities of the Middle East are conveyed through Chang’s richly textured portrait of Robert Fisk, a British reporter who has spent decades covering all of the players in the region, sometimes sparking controversies in the process. Mixing interviews with Fisk with riveting scenes of him in the field in Syria and elsewhere, THIS IS NOT A MOVIE goes beyond the headlines to compel audiences to ponder the responsibilities and challenges of the media in an era of Fake News and intense polarization.
To mark our 20th anniversary, we’re launching the Live the Experience Fund that will provide tickets for local schools and community groups to attend the Festival and live the experience first hand.
