About the Film:
When the Taliban put a bounty on Afghan director Hassan Fazili’s head, he is forced to flee with his wife and two young daughters. Over the course of their multi-year saga in search of safety, the family grasped onto the only means they had to assert control: their camera-phones.
As they experienced increasingly degrading circumstances, the family latched on to filmmaking as a way to not just survive, but retain their humanity. Midnight Traveler is a gripping vérité story made by a family on the run. Their unique access and artistic vision provide an intimate portrait of a loving family and the myriad of fellow travelers they meet on their odyssey.
