Film Screening & Discussion: Flee

March 15 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

In FLEE, the Grand Jury Prize winner at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival, filmmaker Jonas Poher Rasmussen tells a poignant story of belonging and the search for identity. 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.

The film will be followed by a panel discussion and dinner for attendees. This event is co-sponsored by Fletcher Pride.
