For more than 40 years, journalist Robert Fisk has reported on some of the most violent and divisive conflicts in the world. Director Yung Chang captures Fisk in relentless 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.

An SDFF exclusive Q+A between director Yung Chang and SDFF co-director and lead programmer Jean McGlothlin is available now. Watch it here!
