A visually brilliant and startlingly realized documentary, FLEE tells the story of Amin Nawabi as he grapples with a secret he has kept hidden for 20 years, one that threatens to derail the life he has built for himself and his soon to be husband. Recounted mostly through animation to director Jonas Poher Rasmussen, he tells for the first time the story of his extraordinary journey as a child refugee from Afghanistan. Danish with subtitles.

"It's activism, therapy, and great cinema all at once." - IndieWire
"Flee is a remarkably humanising and complex film, expanding and expounding the kind of story that's too easily simplified." - Guardian
