FLEE (90minutes) tells the story of Amin Nawabi as he grapples with a painful secret he has kept hidden for 20 years, one that threatens to derail the life he has built for himself and his soon to be husband. Recounted mostly through animation to director Jonas Poher Rasmussen, he tells for the first time the story of his extraordinary journey as a child refugee from Afghanistan. Note: Movie audio is a mix of Danish, Dari, and Russian. Subtitles in English

For Our Fathers

Austrian soprano Ute Gfrerer and Boston-area visual artist Lisa Rosowsky present an unforgettable evening of song and art in honor of their fathers, who lived through two very different experiences of World War II in Europe. Gfrerer’s father was a member of the Nazi Youth Party and a soldier, while Rosowsky’s father went into hiding in France after his parents were arrested and sent to Auschwitz. Both daughters were left with a legacy of silence and grief, which they transformed into art and music. Sunday, April 10 at 7PM.
