After years of keeping his past a secret, Amin Nawabi recounts the extraordinary true story of how he fled Afghanistan when he was a child. Depicting one refugee’s experience through vivid and immersive animation, this outstanding documentary presents a moving memoir of struggle and self-discovery. Nominated for three Academy Awards (including Best Documentary) and two BAFTAs.
‘It’s an ingenious way to tell a story that’s both extraordinary and commonplace: only with the teller’s anonymity tactfully preserved can the tale itself be hauled fully into the light.’
Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
‘Flee is a remarkably humanising and complex film, expanding and expounding the kind of story that’s too easily simplified.’
Benjamin Lee, The Guardian

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
