Special Movie Screening of Flee

Willunga Circle of Friends presents special screening of Flee

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize  at the 2021 Sundance Festival.

This is an extraordinary true story of a man, Amin, on the verge of marriage which compels him to reveal his hidden past for the first time.  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.
