NEON film releasing has unveiled the official trailer and poster art for Flee, the acclaimed animated feature by Danish director Jonas Poher Rasmussen which won the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize for Documentary at Sundance and the Annecy Cristal for Feature Films, currently in the official selection of the Cannes Film Festival.
Based on the life story of Rasmussen’s childhood friend, 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, Amin tells for the first time the story of his extraordinary journey as a child refugee from Afghanistan.
Executive produced and starring (in the English-language version) Riz Ahmed and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Flee is produced by Monica Hellström and Signe Byrge Sørensen for Final Cut for Real, with animation by Sun Creature Studio, both in Denmark.
