Styx depicts the transformation of a strong woman torn from her contented world during a sailing trip. When she becomes the only person to come to the aid of a group of migrants and refugees shipwrecked on the high seas, she is shown the limits of her importance and of the empathy of her cultural milieu.
The film (2018, 94 minutes, in English with French and German subtitles) will be followed by a panel discussion.
The screening is organised in partnership with the International Organisation for Migration as part of the Global Migration Film Festival.
“Should a lone yachtswoman act when authorities tell her to sail away? Wolfgang Fischer’s drama steers into Europe’s migrant crisis with conviction.” – The Guardian
