Styx (12A)

2018, directed by Wolfgang Fischer, 94 minutes

A lone yachtswoman on a trip from Gibraltar to Ascension Island is faced with the dilemma of our times when she comes across a boatload of refugees in a precarious vessel. Does she heed the instructions of the authorities to move on or should she lend a helping hand, and if so, what can she do? This intelligent, tense and well-judged film brilliantly shot on location has earned high praise from critics and film-goers alike.
