Synopsis

Thursday, August 1 at 6.30PM

When the Taliban put a price on Afghan director Hassan Fazili’s head, he is forced to flee with his filmmaker wife Fatima and their two young daughters. Using smartphones, the family chronicle their 5000 kilometre, three year journey. ?

Refugees rarely get to tell their own stories, but Midnight Traveler has an immediacy and intimacy that puts a human face on a global crisis. The danger and difficulty of the family’s journey is balanced by the warmth of their love for each other. Fazili’s eye for unexpected beauty and the irrepressible spirit of his two daughters make this superbly crafted film unique amongst migration stories.

In Search of Mozart

E Documentary

Made to celebrate the 250th anniversary of Mozart's birth, IN SEARCH OF MOZART is the first feature-length documentary on Mozart's life. Produced with the world's leading orchestras and musicians, told through a 25,000 mile journey along every route Mozart followed, this detective story takes us to the heart of genius. Throughout, it is the music that takes center stage, with the jigsaw of Mozart's life fitting around it. With rigorous analysis from musicologists and experts such as Jonathan Miller, Cliff Eisen, Nicholas Till, Bayan Northcott and the late Stanley Sadie, a new, vivid impression of the composer emerges. It dispels the many common myths about Mozart's genius, health, relationships, death and character, to present a new image, very different from Milos Forman's 'Amadeus'.
