Flee

March 03

A country can be a home, and a home can be erased, and the aching, lovely FLEE trafficks in the space between belonging and wandering.

FLEE - Official Trailer


In FLEE, the Grand Jury Prize winner at last year's Sundance Festival, filmmaker Jonas Poher Rasmussen tells a poignant story of belonging and the search for identity. Amin's life has been defined by his past and a secret he's kept for over 20 years. Forced to leave his home country of Afghanistan as a young child with his mother and siblings, Amin now grapples with how his past will affect his future in Denmark and the life he is building with his soon-to-be husband. Told brilliantly through the use of animation to protect his identity, Amin looks back over his life, opening up for the first time about his past, his trauma, the truth about his family and his acceptance of his own sexuality. D: Jonas Poher Rasmussen, Denmark/ Sweden, subtitled, 2021
