In this animated film now available in preview on Arte (the film will be released in theaters on August 24), Amin (pseudonym), 36, tells us his story. A homosexual Afghan refugee, he agrees, for the time of an interview, to dive back into his memories: from his childhood in Kabul to his arrival in Denmark, where he met the director, passing through the traumas of the Afghan civil war and Years of wandering in Russia. Born from the encounter between two men, Flee offers a poignant story. By using animation, Danish director Jonas Poher Rasmussen manages to preserve his friend’s anonymity, while immersing the viewer in this testimony, magnificently dubbed by actor Kyan Khojandi. Police violence, corruption and torn families are represented in color. Black and white sequences highlight the most traumatic events. True incursions into reality, television news archives support Amin’s story: images of war, flight and wanderings, which are not not unlike the current Ukrainian drama. More than the search for a welcoming land, Amin’s story traces a quest for identity. That of a young homosexual man who seeks himself while fleeing. A moving confession distinguished by an avalanche of prizes and three Oscar nominations. The documentary Flee can be found in full on Arte, before finding it in our dark rooms on August 24 next.
