Event Description
FLEE - Documentary

Flee tells the story of Amin Nawabi (a pseudonym) as he grapples with a painful secret he’s kept hidden for 20 years, one that threatens to derail the life he has built for himself. Now in his 30’s, Amin shares for the first time his harrowing story as a child refugee from Afghanistan, separated from his family and forced to rely on human smugglers to make it to safety in Denmark. The use of animation allowed Amin to finally feel safe to reveal his story -- his real voice is used in the film, but he can still remain anonymous. Danish Filmmaker Jonas Poher Rasmussen met Amin Nawabi in the 90s when he moved to the small town where Jonas lived. For years, he knew nothing about his friend’s journey that began with the death of his father in Kabul when he was a young child, and continued in Moscow, when his family made several harrowing attempts to resettle in Western Europe. Amin’s childhood was defined by periods of waiting, hoping — and fleeing.  Winner of the 2021 Sundance Grand Jury Prize and MFF’s Spotlight Documentary award.
