OTTAWA’S CINEMA FOR INTERNATIONAL AND INDEPENDENT MOVIES

Midnight Traveler

Afghan filmmaker Hassan Fazili made a documentary about the Taliban in 2015, and the Taliban didn’t like it. They assassinated his film’s subject and targeted Fazili and his family. So Hassan, wife Fatima and young children Zahra and Nargis set out on a torturous refugee route from Kabul through the Middle East and hopefully to the European Union.

Poster for the refugee documentary Midnight TravelerThe harrowing 3,500-mile, three-year journey by these modern-day Von Trapps was documented by Hassan with his cell phone, and the result is a remarkable documentary, Midnight Traveler, winner of the Special Jury Award at the Sundance Film Festival.
