by Jonas Poher Rasmussen Border Lines

In 1989, Amin had to flee Afghanistan with his family – but he was the only one who eventually made it to Copenhagen. Twenty years later, the now respected academic is about to marry his partner. The time has finally come to face the long-suppressed memories of a flight marked by fear and trauma. And he does this by sharing them with his friend and filmmaker Jonas Poher Rasmussen, who works with animations and archive material to preserve Amin's anonymity. The result is a deeply moving, ground-breaking documentary about flight, migration, and the search for identity in contemporary Europe.
