Details

This screening will be followed by a recorded Q&A with director Jonas Poher Rasmussen.


Winner of the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize for Documentary at Sundance Film Festival and nominated for two BAFTAs, Flee is a testament to friendship, family and acceptance.

This tender interview between film director Jonas and his school friend Amin, years after they first met, blossoms into an extraordinary story of love, survival and resilience. Vibrant animation paints the story of Amin’s departure from what had been a happy childhood home in Afghanistan, subsequently fractured by war, to his current life as a successful academic in Denmark.

As he prepares to take the next step in his commitment to long-term partner Kasper, Amin recalls his former fears of persecution and how there wasn’t a word for homosexuality in Afghanistan. Memories whirl up in brushstrokes: bright days from a child’s-eye view, the subdued hue of limbo, and the bright pink headphones that punctuate his story with bouncing carefree 1980s hits. Until now, Amin has never shared his full story, for a secret threatens to destabilise the life he has built. It’s a compelling film that contemplates the meaning of home.

Impossible to forget. ★★★★★
