Recounted mostly using striking animation, this affecting drama of a man’s connection to his past – one that holds a painful secret – is as thrilling as it is devastating.

A new classic of 21st century animation and winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival, Flee has been nominated for a record 3 Oscars for best Animated Feature, Best Documentary Feature and Best International Feature Film making it the first film in history to do so.

Director Jonas Poher Rasmussen tells the tale of Amin, the filmmaker's soon-to-be husband who also co-wrote the script. Amin’s story centres around his family, who—when Amin was a child—fled Afghanistan for a precarious existence in post-communist Russia. Recounted mostly using striking animation, this affecting drama of a man’s connection to his past—one that holds a painful secret—is as thrilling as it is devastating. Bong Joon-ho, the director of Parasite has listed Flee as one of his favourite films of 2021 calling it ‘the most moving piece of cinema of the year.”
