Critic Reviews for Midnight Traveler
Shot entirely on iPhones, the Afghan director's charming and moving documentary charts his three-year flight with his young family from Tajikistan, where they had failed to find asylum, 3,500 miles to the west.
It is a suspenseful adventure story, a psychological profile of a family on the run and, most poignantly, an intimate portrait of two young children adopting adult behaviours as a matter of survival.
A film that should be required viewing for anyone seeking to enter the debate on the refugee crisis, not as polemic but as a digital box of surprises.
Midnight Traveler is an unforgettable answer to the refugee question.
