...and the winners are... – Styx
$10 General Admission
** Co-presented with Goethe Pop Up Seattle & SIFF! **
A self-assured doctor (Susanne Wolff) goes on a solo yachting trip in the Atlantic and discovers the limits of her resourcefulness upon encountering a refugee-packed vessel that’s rapidly taking on water. Director Fischer’s steady hand powers this tumultuous, sociopolitical thriller on the open water, exploring the topic through a lens that examines both personal and ethical facets while also implicating corporations and nations of privilege for their inaction in the face of a crisis that grows larger every day.
Content warning: Contains scenes of intense violence.
“This is All Is Lost with a spinning moral compass and a topical dimension that proves even more gripping than its brilliantly achieved, visceral action.” – Jessica Kiang, Variety
