About the production of Flee

The production of Flee took almost two years. The idea behind the film was to show a different perspective of the Afghan diaspora. Director Faryal Meerza and her team did an incredible job capturing the essence of the film and its important message. Riz Ahmed and Nikolaj Coster Waldau would serve as executive producers. This announcement was made on January 2021. It also narrates an English language version of the film. Farryl Meerza is a Pakistani-American filmmaker and the director of this film. She wanted to create something that would impact people rather than just another movie about refugees in exile. “I’ve been fascinated with stories from Afghanistan for a long time now because it always seemed like these untold gems were really hidden away or ignored completely, I think we should be telling more humanizing stories about Afghan culture and history, but also bringing attention to some of the issues they face today such as gender inequality and civil war within their own country (Mehrzad).”

What is the plot of Flee?

The film follows Amin Nawabi, who, on the verge of marrying his husband, shares his story for the first time about his hidden past, fleeing his home country of Afghanistan to Denmark as a refugee. In 2001, Amin was just 16 years old when he and his family fled their home country of Afghanistan. After a long and treacherous journey, they arrived in Denmark as refugees. Flee is the story of that journey – a coming-of-age tale about hope, courage, and resilience in the face of adversity. Amin quickly realizes that life as a refugee in Denmark is not easy. He must start from scratch, learning a new language and culture while struggling to make ends meet. But through hard work and determination, Amin eventually builds a new life for himself in Denmark. And though there are still challenges along the way, he finds happiness and love – finally able to call Denmark his home.
