Midnight Traveler

Sat 21 September @ 8:15 pm

- £4.50 – £10.50

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. Recording their perilous journey, Fazili shows first hand the violence, danger and uncertainty they encounter in their search for safety. Few documentaries have managed to reveal the reality of displacement so powerfully and with such intimacy, capturing moments of beauty and poetry – and the love shared between a family on the run.

“Affecting, essential documentary, […] a remarkable achievement” – Screen Daily

Plus short: Aziza (Soudade Kaadan | Syria/Lebanon | 2019 | 13 min)
