Midnight Traveler by Hassan Fazili to open Inconvenient Films Festival’19

When the Taliban puts a bounty on Afghan director Hassan Fazili’s head, he, his wife and two daughters are forced to flee. Fazili tells the story firsthand about the dangers facing refugees seeking asylum in Europe: enduring smugglers, gangs and refugee camps. The movie is shot entirely by Hassan and his family on three phones.

What does it mean to teach your children to ride a bicycle in the backyard of a refugee camp? How does it feel, instead of just strolling in nature, to live with your family in the woods?

The film is from programme ‘Panorama’ which presents documentaries from the most important international film festivals. This year, the most prominent topics in this programme are the process of getting mature, the dichotomy between childish and adult, and the long-term impacts of social issues on our perception of the world.
