“Flight is a really lovely film, very tender and intimate. Laura’s relationship with the girls shines through. It’s so refreshing to watch a film like this; made from the refugees’ point of view.” – Kim Longinotto

“This story of two sisters’ journey from Syria to Sweden – and how it changes them – is simultaneously uplifting and heart-breaking. That it achieves what it does in such a short time is nothing short of miraculous. It should be shown in schools. And no, we weren’t crying, our eyes were sweating. It was hot. Shut up. (But that scene with the life-jackets, though. Fuck me…)” – Outline Magazine Norwich
