One of the most riveting and captivating films of the year, with breathtaking animation, FLEE recounts the true story of Afghan refugee Amin Nawabi. Living in Denmark, on the cusp of marriage, Amin reveals a secret that he has kept for 20 years. For the first time in his life Amin shares the story of his daring escape from Afghanistan as a child refugee in the 1990s.
Told through animation as Amin shares his story with his longtime friend director Jonas Poher Rasmussen, the film follows his extraordinary and harrowing journey across borders and languages as he seeks out refuge in Europe. Utterly engrossing, with its ingenious blend of narration, animation and archival footage, FLEE is at once a survival thriller and a coming of age drama. While this film conveys some of the universal experiences of refugees from across the globe, as a new wave of Afghan refugees flee their homes, FLEE is more poignant and urgent than ever.
