Thu 27th June 2019

Director: Wolfgang Fischer
Stars: Susanne Wolff, Gedion Oduor Wekesa

Emergency paramedic Rike escapes the pressures of work to embark on a solo yachting trip to
Ascension Island. She is confronted by a drifting vessel overloaded with refugees. Calls to the
coastguard advise her not to get involved, but her humanitarian instincts take over. Director Fischer
combines a focused plot and masterful cinematography to examine the problems mass migration
poses, aided by an intelligent performance from Susanne Wolff. “Fischer literalises the turbulence
we’re now navigating, and asks some stern questions of our moral compasses” (The Guardian).
