Stunning animated documentary about Amin Nawabi, an Afghan refugee in Denmark, who reveals his astonishing true story for the first time, the details of which may threaten the life he has built for himself and his soon-to-be husband.
Revealing his story to director Jonas Poher Rasmussen, his close friend and high-school classmate, Amin recounts the extraordinary journey he undertook as a child refugee from Afghanistan to Denmark. Made with a striking blend of animation, intimate interviews between Jonas and Amin, ‘80s music and archive footage, FLEE details an unforgettable story of self-discovery and relentless will to survive.
“Flee is a remarkably humanising and complex film, expanding and expounding the kind of story that’s too easily simplified.” ~Benjamin Lee, The Guardian
“Blurring traditional boundaries of documentary with rich, beautiful animation in many shades and colours, the Danish director has a great deal invested in telling this story.” ~Matthew Anderson, CineVue
