An animated documentary telling the true story about a man’s need to confront his past in order to truly have a future. Amin arrived as an unaccompanied minor in Denmark from Afghanistan.

For the first time, he is sharing his story with his close friend.

Here;s the trail to whet your apetitte:

★★★★★ Flee is a remarkably humanising and complex film The Guardian
★★★★★ An unfortunately timely film, Flee uses animation primarily to sharpen the dangerous edges of its refugee story Observer
★★★★★ Flee morphs from a tale of dispossession to a testament to the power of narrative – to overtake a life, and to liberate it. The Washington Post
