Home > Flee


Amin Nawabi (a pseudonym), a 36-year-old high-achieving academic, 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 – his close friend and high-school classmate, he tells for the first time the story of his extraordinary journey as a child refugee from Afghanistan.

Through heartfelt interviews between Jonas and Amin, Flee tells an unforgettable story of self-discovery. Showing how only by confronting the past is it possible to carve out a future, and the universal truth that only when you stop fleeing from who you are can you find the true meaning of home.

Select screenings of Flee will be the English-language version, featuring the voices of Executive Producers Riz Ahmed and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.

Screening in English (dubbed):
