Flee, possibly the most hyped indie animated feature of the year so far, has a new trailer and poster, courtesy of its North American distributor Neon.
The documentary is based on the testimony of Amin (a pseudonym), who fled Afghanistan as a child and is now living in Denmark as an openly gay man. The trailer shows how the film interweaves limited animation and archive footage to tell his tale of trauma and secrecy. Watch it below:
Flee has had a golden run to date. It was one of four animated features to be selected at last year’s edition of Cannes, which didn’t take place. Premiering at Sundance, it won the festival’s world cinema grand jury prize, then added two awards at Annecy — including the top feature prize — to its haul.
