FLEE

Director:  Jonas Poher Rasmussen

Flee is an animated documentary film that goes behind the story of the many refugees who arrive in Europe everyday. It's the story about how people are forced from their homes and into the hands of human traffickers who take them on a journey through hostile environments and cynical bureaucracies. It's a personal story seen through the eyes of a boy who becomes a man on the journey. And it's a story about a friendship.
