In 2015, after Hassan Fazili's documentary "Peace in Afghanistan" aired on Afghan national television, the Taliban assassinated the film's main subject and put a price on Fazili's head. Fearing for their survival, the Fazili family fled Kabul for Tajikistan. Yet after 14 months spent submitting asylum applications that were rejected again and again, they were deported back to Afghanistan. It was at this juncture that Fazili picked up his cell phone and hit the record button.

"MIDNIGHT TRAVELER is a brutally honest film about the hardship and inhumanity a family endures and their bravery, love, hope, and, above all else, desire to control their own fate."
Gary Garrison - THE PLAYLIST

"A call to action, a sobering first-hand look at the grueling ordeals refugees face, a story of love persevering against all odds, and a visceral, real-life thriller, Midnight Traveler is a unique cinematic experience that will hopefully snap us all to reality."
Alex Saveliev - FILM THREAT

"The suffering, fear and humiliation that they experience is balanced by moments of warmth and an artist’s magpie eye for unexpected glimpses of beauty. It’s a remarkable achievement."
Wendy Ide - SCREEN INTERNATIONAL
