i² Film Club
i² Film Club, an international independent film viewing, and discussion group meets the 4th Saturday of each month (January through October only) at 10:30 a.m. at the Jackson Branch Library (1700 North Florida Avenue).
Synopsis: ER doctor Rike (Susanne Wolff) embarks on a one-woman solo sailing trip to Ascension Island in the Atlantic. When Rike comes across a sinking ship of refugees, she is quickly torn out of her contented and idealized world and must make a momentous decision. Aptly named after the mythological river that separates the living from the dead, STYX is an astute modern day parable of Western indifference in the face of marginalized suffering. Carrying practically the entire film, Wolff is riveting as a woman pushed to her physical, psychological and moral limits.
Refreshments are provided and each showing is followed by a guided discussion.
