Flee | Denmark | 2021 | Dir. Jonas Poher Rasmussen | 15 | 89 min | IDMb 7.9 | Subtitled

FLEE tells the extraordinary true story of a man, Amin, on the verge of marriage which compels him to reveal his hidden past for the first time.

An animated documentary telling the true story about a man's need to confront his past in order to truly have a future. Amin arrived as an unaccompanied minor in Denmark from Afghanistan. Today, at 36, he is a successful academic and is getting married to his long-time boyfriend. A secret he has been hiding for over 20 years threatens to ruin the life he has built for himself. For the first time, he is sharing his story with his close friend.

"The film is about loneliness and solitude so we drew a lot of inspiration from Edward Hopper paintings for how we would treat light and colour."

Entry is free for HFS Members.

Tickets for non-members cost £6 each (Under 25's £3). These can be purchased online here or will available on the door (contactless payments only please, we are not taking cash this season). A small processing fee will be applied to all tickets.
