"A doc of crucial immediacy, a plea for all humanity... Advocacy filmmaking at its best and most chilling... both fascinating and terrifying... Brent E. Huffman's gift as a cinematographer provides haunting, lyrical images and as a director he wisely balances the passion of Temori with the eternal loss of something worth saving. Saving Mes Aynak is simply required viewing for those whose soul will compel them to act. Unique and immediate. That rare doc that NEEDS to be seen."
