“The film is compelling and feels completely authentic. It is a testament to the strength and bravery of the women dealing with impossible conditions but finding a way to carry on. The horror of life as a refugee, an exile, is powerfully brought home with amazing acting, directing by Anna Fahr, cinematography by Mark Khalife, Director of Photography, music by Alan Spiljak, Composer.” - Barbara Keer, Splash Magazines
“Fahr’s Valley of Exile is a beautiful story of resilience made with enough heart and sincerity that you can’t help but feel it’s a story told from the inside of its conflict, a witness testimony framed under a cinematic structure that contains the basic elements of a narrative, but never pulls any punches to be a mainstream genre story.” (Federico Furzan, Movie-Blogger.com)
