‘Flee’ movie screening and panel discussion

Join us for the film screening and panel discussion of ‘Flee’ (Flugt), 2021. Flee follows the journey of Amin Nawabi, an Afghan refugee who grapples with a painful secret he has kept hidden for 20 years, one which now threatens to derail the life he has built for himself and his soon-to-be husband. Revealing his story for the first time to director Jonas Poher Rasmussen, his close friend and high school classmate, Amin recounts the extraordinary journey he undertook in the 1980s as a child refugee from war-torn Kabul to Denmark.

A panel discussion will follow the screening. The panel includes:
-Renee Dixson, chair of the Forcibly Displaced People Network (FDPN), an LGBTIQ+ refugee-led organisation
-Professor Des Manderson, ANU College of Law & Fellow of the Australian Academy of Law, author of Danse Macabre: Temporalities of Law in the Visual Arts (2019)
-Dr Jessica Hambly, Senior Lecturer of Law, Deputy Director of Law Reform and Social Justice, expert in refugee law
