When the Taliban puts a bounty on Afghan director Hassan Fazili’s head, he is forced to flee with his wife and two young daughters. By capturing their uncertain journey on camera, Fazili shows both the danger and desperation of their multi-year odyssey and the tremendous love shared between them.
Midnight Traveler is one of the most vital human rights films to come out this year, putting a human face on a global crisis and the many thousands of families out there just like Fazili’s, seeking shelter from violence.
