Official Trailer

Evocatively animated in a style that is visually sparse but emotionally vibrant, Flee follows Amin Nawabi, as he confronts a painful secret that may threaten to derail the life he has built for himself and his soon to be husband. As Amin shares his story, for the first time, about his hidden past fleeing his home country of Afghanistan to Denmark as a refugee, the viewer is drawn into the complex film through both archival footage and artfully imagined animation. Winner of many European Film Awards 2021.
