“A remarkably humanising and complex film, expanding and expounding the kind of story that’s too easily simplified.”~Benjamin Lee, The Guardian

Aroview: Stunning animated documentary based on the story of Amin Nawabi, an Afghan refugee who grapples with a painful secret he has kept hidden for 20 years, which now threatens to derail the life he has built for himself and his soon-to-be husband.

Revealing his story for the first time to director Jonas Poher Rasmussen, his close friend and high-school classmate, Amin recounts the extraordinary journey he undertook as a child refugee from Afghanistan to Denmark. Made with a striking blend of animation, intimate interviews between Jonas and Amin, ‘80s music and archive footage, FLEE details an unforgettable story of self-discovery and relentless will to survive.
