There are many laugh out-loud moments together with searing insights into the craft of filmmaking and how not to make friends!

Documentary film that focuses on the period beginning with the birth of Motown in Detroit in 1958 until its relocation to Los Angeles in the early 1970's.

Flee tells the true story of Amin’s incredible journey, as a child refugee, from Afghanistan to Denmark. Travelling over land and sea Amin comes across the best and worst of humanity. Amin’s compelling story is beautifully and skilfully told using animation and archive footage. Flee broke records in 2022 gaining Oscar nominations for Best International Film, Best Animation and Best Documentary. “The film is about loneliness and solitude so we drew a lot of inspiration from Edward Hopper paintings for how we would treat light and colour.” Jonas Poher Rasmussen
