This adult animation tells the story of a man under the alias Amin Nawabi who shares, for the first time, his hidden past of fleeing his home country of Afghanistan to Denmark.

“It’s a genuine thrill to encounter a film as exciting and immediate as Flee… there are sequences of almost unbearable suspense as Amin tries to find safety but also poignant liberation.”Benjamin Lee, The Guardian

“The ‘serious cartoons for grown-ups’ genre may have found its defining entry with this profoundly affecting animation about the true life trials of a gay Afghan refugee.” – Kevin Maher, The Times
