Flee

Depicting the refugee experience through vivid animation, Flee pushes the boundaries of documentary filmmaking to present a moving memoir of self-discovery.

Nominated for 3 Oscars (Best Animated Feature, International Feature, Documentry Feature)

Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner FLEE tells the story of Amin Nawabi as he grapples with a painful 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.

"An intimate portrait of the lasting traumas of displacement and one of the most humane films of the year." - Los Angeles Times

"The year's greatest animated film is also one of the year's best docs." - Parade Magazine

"The animation here is used for such expressionistic beauty." - FilmWeek
