Director: Wolfgang Fischer Starring: Susanne Wolff, Inga Birkenfeld, Alexander Beyer Duration: 94 min Trailer https://vimeo.com/327970699STYX is the seventh film in Birds’ Eye View’s ‘Reclaim The Frame’ project, backed by the British Film Institute; a mission to bring ever-greater audiences to films by women to build a more balanced film future and offer cinema fans wider perspectives of the world.STYX has been critically acclaimed:“A much needed wake up call”Little White Lies“The intensity of a ticking-clock thriller”Indie WirePremiering at the Berlin Film Festival, where it opened the Panorama Special section, STYX is a work of unrelenting intensity and technical brilliance. ER doctor Rike (Susanne Wolff) embarks on a one-woman solo sailing trip to Ascension Island in the Atlantic. When Rike comes across a sinking ship of refugees, she is quickly torn out of her contented world and must make a momentous decision. Aptly named after the mythological river that separates the living from the dead, STYX is an astute modern-day parable of Western indifference in the face of marginalized suffering. There will be a post screening PANEL DISCUSSION with Birds’ Eye View’s director-at-large, Mia Bays (an Oscar winning producer and agitator with 30 years’ experience in film) plus a local guest academic and film critic and chair of the UK Critics Circle and podcaster (Girls On Film), Anna Smith.
