'Flee won the World Cinema Documentary Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, and no wonder: It's heartbreaking and moving, and hard to forget.' - Alissa Wilkinson, Vox

'Flee is a remarkably humanising and complex film, expanding and expounding the kind of story that's too easily simplified.' - Benjamin Lee, Guardian

'It's activism, therapy, and great cinema all at once.' - Eric Kohn, Indie Wire

Flee is one of the film highlights of the year, a documentary which innovatively blends animation and archive footage to tell an extraordinary and moving personal story. ‘Amin Nawabi’ (a pseudonym), is a 36-year-old academic and a gay man, soon to be married. He reveals a painful secret he has kept hidden for 20 years: his extraordinary journey as a child refugee from Afghanistan to Denmark. Heartfelt interviews with his friend, director Jonas Poher Rasmussen and animated storytelling combine to create the perfect medium, both protecting Amin’s real identity and revealing his most intimate experiences.
