A valuable, first-hand refugees' story.

The film also excels in the way it shows that middle-class liberals who make movies and run a café can lose everything in an instant.

Unlike a more conventional refugee documentary - shot by an outsider parachuting in - this is an intimate and ongoing study in which the family have complete agency, lending the film an additional ring of truth.

Feb 8, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Fazili's musings when paired with the staggering imagery he collects of the family's journey gives human dimension to a migrant crisis so often only seen from a macro perspective, but then again that's why it feels like such a monumental undertaking.

Fazili doesn't lean that much on the hardships of the foursome's journey. There is plenty of that, yet also so much more.

"Midnight Traveler" puts a human face on the plight of migrants, and puts the lie to the hateful demonization of immigrants everywhere.
