Description

Amin Nawabi (a pseudonym), a 36-year-old academic in Denmark, grapples with a painful secret he has kept hidden for 20 years. He opens up to his close friend, director Jonas Poher Rasmussen, telling for the first time the story of his extraordinary journey as a child refugee from Afghanistan. Told mostly through animation, with some additional archival footage, Flee weaves together a stunning tapestry of reflections to tell the deeply affecting story of a man grappling with his traumatic past in order to find his true self and the real meaning of home. Despite the harrowing stakes, the film finds many moments of light and humour, revelling in the joys of pop culture, young romance and small acts of kindness. Amin’s courage in confronting his deepest fears is a powerful act to experience in this artful telling. Pushing the boundary of the documentary hybrid form, this Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner breaks bold new ground in animation and confessional narrative with an extraordinary true story that is heartbreaking, moving and impossible to forget.
