Family Reunion Circle (115) who assist asylum seekers and refugees with either protection visas or family reunion are holding a film fundraising evening.
The film is Flee, an animated documentary, directed by Jonas Poher Rasmussen with three Oscar award nominations, based on the real-life story of an Afghan man fleeing to Europe for his life.
Flee tells the story of Amin Nawabi as he grapples with a painful secret he has kept hidden for 20 years, one that threatens to derail the life he has built for himself and his soon-to-be husband. Recounted mostly through animation to the director, he tells for the first time the story of his extraordinary journey as a child refugee from Afghanistan.

When Australia stopped the boats, three Afghan refugees stuck in Indonesia started a school that inspired an education revolution. This film tells their story, and our event will support their school.
After the film, Muzafar Ali and Jolyon Hoff will lead a discussion.
Funds raised will help support the Cisarua School in Indonesia.
