STYX - 4.30pm (short film screening at 4pm, tea & cake from 3.30pm)

***Screening as part of our Refugee Weekend***

Directed by Wolfgang Fischer (2018)

Starring: Susanne Wolff, Gedion Oduor Wekesa, Felicity Babao
Rated 12A

After dramatic opening scenes we follow doctor Rieke (Wolff) on holiday attempting to fulfil a long-held dream by sailing alone from Gibraltar to Ascension Island in the Atlantic. Her voyage changes completely when she comes across a boat load of stricken migrants and is forced to make life or death decisions. The contrast between her Western European lifestyle and that of the desperate West African migrants could not be more stark. A tense and provocative, gripping drama encompassing themes of racism and empathy, western privilege and moral responsibility.

MIGRANT VOICES IN LONDON - short film screening at 4pm before STYX.
Ahmed Sinno, Anna Virabyan, Cina Aissa, Muhammad Arkam Babar
Rated 12A

With an introduction and Q&A discussion by Ahmed Sinno. Tea and cake available from 3:30pm

This short film is made up entirely of the visuals and narratives of four migrants living in London. As part of a participatory research project, Cina, Anna, Ahmed and Muhammad were invited to film their daily lives in the summer of 2018. This was followed by open-ended conversations in which each of them reflect on their experiences. These are the lives of people who are marginalised in various ways, encountering legal, political, social, racial borders and hierarchies that might be invisible to others. Yet, they also experience London life as others do with friends, family, leisure, art, shopping and travel. This film shows London as a space of mobility of continuous movement and of borders and restrictions.

Doors open 30mins before the film starts. Memberships available - 50 for 27 films! www.lewes-filmclub.com
