#144 – The Oscars 2022: Flee & The Hand of God


The Academy Awards 2022 International Feature Film Nominees Part 1 of 3: Searching for Home. Karri and Henrik break down the hand-drawn Danish documentary ‘Flee’ about a refugee called Amin and Italy’s coming-of-age Netflix contender ‘The Hand of God’. Both films tackle the theme of looking for home, both literally and spiritually. Paolo Sorrentino’s ‘The Hand of God’ splits opinions strongly. Films about refugees are no longer novel, but does the hand-drawn animation and heart of ‘Flee’ win people over? Which one is the stronger contender?

Films covered in this episode:
Flee (2021)
The Hand of God (2021)

Hosted by Karri Ojala and Henrik Telkki. Pictures from giaknight. Edited by Karri Ojala. The Flick Lab theme tune written and performed by Nick Grivell.
