Film Independent Members, you and a guest are invited to watch Flee in our Film Independent Presents Online Screening Room, powered by Vision Media. A special pre-recorded conversation with director Jonas Poher Rasmussen, moderated by Louay Khraish (Senior Manager, International Programs, Film Independent), is included as part of this screening experience.
In Flee, the Grand Jury Prize winner at this year’s Sundance Festival, filmmaker Jonas Poher Rasmussen tells a poignant story of belonging and the search for identity. Amin’s life has been defined by his past and a secret he’s kept for over 20 years. Forced to leave his home country of Afghanistan as a young child with his mother and siblings, Amin now grapples with how his past will affect his future in Denmark and the life he is building with his soon-to-be husband. Told brilliantly through the use of animation to protect his identity, Amin looks back over his life, opening up for the first time about his past, his trauma, the truth about his family, and his acceptance of his own sexuality.
From NEON and Participant, Flee will be available in select theaters December 3.
