Et medrivende portræt af den legendariske journalist og krigsreporter Robert Fisk, der i 40 år har rapporteret fra verdens frontlinier.

Gennem gaderne i det krigsramte Syrien og langs muren på Vestbredden følger vi den kontroversielle og legendariske krigsreporter Robert Fisk. Med sin notesbog i hånden og tasken over skulderen, møder vi en mand, der i mere end 40 år har rapporteret fra verdens brændpunkter. Rolig og fattet fortæller Fisk historierne fra ofrenes perspektiv og udpeger magtens centrum. Gennem arkivklip, interviews og klip fra felten, tegnes et portræt af en ikke altid elsket karakter, der ikke desto mindre i flere årtier har vist os verdens grimmere sider og - som titlen antyder - har insisteret på, at det her er virkeligheden, ikke en film.

A captivating portrait of the legendary journalist and war reporter Robert Fisk, who for 40 years has reported from front lines all over the world.

We follow the controversial and legendary war reporter Robert Fisk through the streets of war-torn Syria and along the wall at the West Bank. We meet a man who – with a notebook in hand and a bag over his shoulder – has been reporting from all of the world’s hot spots for more than 40 years. Fisk calmly tells us stories from the victims’ perspective and points at the centre of power. Through archive footage, interviews and film clips from the battlefields, we see a portrait of a man who is not always admired, but who nonetheless has shown us the world’s uglier sides for decades and – as the title indicates – has insisted that what we see is reality, not a film.
