Director Jonas Poher Rasmussen depicts the refugee experience through vivid animation in a moving memoir hailed as “a feat of humanistic filmmaking… a movie we will be celebrating all through next year’s awards season and talking about long after” (Harper’s Bazaar) (89 min. In Danish with English subtitles)
