Sundance Review : Flee (2021)


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.


Flee was definitely one of the most unique films of the 2021 Sundance Film Festival, it’s a documentary that’s animated which is very different. The documentary itself is a true story about a refugee’s life with the threat of capture and death, the storytelling is just absolutely fantastic. It’s a fantastic blend of a documentary and animation that really created something very special, there’s very haunting imagery that is also at the same time very beautiful which shows how incredible the storytelling really is! Flee tells the story through the animation which actually makes Amin’s story more impactful and emotional, it’s truly a fantastic showcase of storytelling. It’s at the point where you feel you are with Amin as you are witnessing the trauma and pain he went through. Flee is most definitely a film to keep an eye out for, as soon as it releases I highly recommend giving it a watch!
