Press

  • THE GUARDIAN
    Remarkable refugee story told with heart and audacity.
    Flee is a remarkably humanizing and complex film, expanding and expounding the kind of story that’s too easily simplified.
    Benjamin Lee
  • INDIE WIRE
    “Flee” made news ahead of its Sundance premiere when news broke that Riz Ahmed and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau were boarding the project as executive producers and to lend their voices for the movie’s English-language dub.
    Zack Sharf
  • INDIE WIRE
    There have been countless movies about the immigration crisis, but none of them have the sheer ingenuity of “Flee”.
    Eric Kohn
  • FILMMAKERMAGAZINE
    Flee, at its heart, is about how constantly having to flee our situation can affect us in our day to day lives and relationships.
    Art Director Jess Nicholls
  • HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
    Although the interviews function almost like therapy, there's nothing didactic here, nothing clinical or overly analytical. Instead, there's a kind of spontaneous purity to the storytelling, built on the empathetic connection established between the filmmaker and his subject.
    David Rooney
