A painful secret, kept hidden for 20 years, threatens to derail the life that Amin Nawabi has built for himself and his soon to be husband. Recounted mostly through animation, Flee tells for the first time the story of his extraordinary journey as a child refugee from Afghanistan.
Thanks to Curzon Films
“Expressive animated documentary Flee beautifully illustrates the personal and universal struggles of a gay Afghan refugee”
“A triumph-of-the-human-spirit story as dramatic as the most finely wrought melodrama”
“A film which simply wouldn’t have worked in any medium but animation”
“This should be taught in schools.”
“A brilliant fusion of documentary filmmaking and striking animation to uniquely deliver a compelling true story, 'Flee' is simply extraordinary.”
