A pointer to the Cinequest film Valley of Exile (2023) Cinequest


This is a pointer toward VALLEY OF EXILE.

I was sent a copy of the film and asked to review it. The trouble is that the film arrived at the wrong time and while I was able to watch the film, it is the sort of film I really needed to see a second time in order to really write on the film with the care that the film deserves.

The film is the story of two sisters who flee from Syria during the early day of the conflict. One sister is pregnant, the other isn’t. They fall into a make shift refugee camp where they ponder their future, bith long term and short.

Not looking or behaving like most other films about refugees, the film is dealing with the early days of people’s migration, the film shows us a side to things that we don’t normally see. This is a look that will open your eyes.

While I can’t do a longer piece right now, don’t let that stop you from seeing this film when it plays at Cinequest
