Sunderland Film Club presents… Flee
Thursday 28th March, 7pm, Tickets £5
Join us at Arts Centre Washington this March for a screening of Jonas Poher Rasmussen’s Oscar-nominated animated tale of redemption – Flee.
For the first time in his life, Amin shares the painful story of his youth – fleeing war-torn ‘80s Kabul for Europe. In turn, he is forced to reckon with a twenty year old secret that threatens to derail the life he has built for himself and his soon to be husband.
Recounted through recorded testimony, animation and archive footage, Flee explores what it is to have to give yourself up to the mercies of fate, to bury layers of loss and trauma and then be forced to deal with their effects later on.
Sunderland Film Club, Wearside’s documentary-focused community cinema, hosts monthly screenings, talks and workshops at Arts Centre Washington.
Sunderland Film Club is supported by Film Hub North with National Lottery funding on behalf of the BFI Film Audience Network.
