to mark World Maritime day, we’ll be watching Styx written by Ika Künzel & Wolfgang Fisch

 STYX (2018)

Co-written by Ika Künzel & director Wolfgang Fischer

A German woman on a solo voyage sails across a sinking boat of refugees in this profound survival story.

Rieke (Susanne Wolff), a busy doctor plans to spend her annual vacation fulfilling her long-held dream of sailing from Gibraltar to the small island of Ascension in the Atlantic. But everything changes when she sees a damaged, overloaded boat full of refugees nearby. Knowing that at least a hundred people could drown, she begins to organize to help them but slowly begins to fear that it will be impossible to do so.

“A blunt, breathless, and astoundingly unsentimental morality play that’s told with the intensity of a ticking-clock thriller…” –  Indiewire

The International Maritime Organization headquarters will be lit blue on World Maritime Day, 30 September 2021, as part of efforts to highlight seafarers and their core role in shipping and its future. Going forward, the IMO building, including the Seafarer Memorial, will be bathed in blue light on each World Maritime Day as a symbolic initiative to unite the maritime community and raise awareness of the vital contribution of shipping to the world.
