FLEE tells the extraordinary true story of a man haunted by a painful secret that he has kept hidden for twenty years, one that threatens to derail the comfortable life that he has built for himself. Forced to leave his home country of Afghanistan as a young child, Amin now grapples with how his past will affect his future in Denmark. In this award-winning animated documentary, he looks back over his life, opening up for the first time about his past, his family, and his acceptance of his sexuality. A poignant story about the search for identity and a sense of belonging, FLEE insists on the need to confront personal and communal history in order to move forward.

A post-film discussion will be held immediately following the screening. Guest speaker Karen Jacobsen, a scholar at Tufts' Fletcher School whose expertise is refugee and migration issues, will lead the post film discussion.

Co-presented by the Global Film Series and the Arts and Humanities Division.
