On the verge of marriage a man reveals his past.
Curzon Soho, London W1D (0.0 miles)
Wed 15 Dec
London Migration Film Festival and The People’s Film Club present:
Flee tells the story of Amin Nawabi. Amin’s childhood, as with many others like him, was interrupted in the late 80s as conflict forced him and his family to escape their home, finding their way to Moscow. The following years are then told in pieces: fearful encounters with corrupt Russian police, desperate attempts to smuggle the family bit by bit to Europe.
Recounted mostly through animation and archive footage, he tells for the first time the story of his extraordinary journey as a child refugee from Afghanistan. Flee shares a ‘remarkable refugee story told with heart and audacity’ (The Guardian).
We will be taking over Genesis Bar with music, stalls and more all afternoon, followed by an introduction to the film.
All funds raised will be donated to Care 4 Calais
