Scarsdale Library Presents Foreign Film "Styx" (Thu. 12 Sep, 2019 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm)

On Thursday, September 12th at 1:00 PM the library will present the film Styx.

Premiering at the Berlinale, where it opened the Panorama Special section, STYX is a work of unrelenting intensity and technical brilliance. 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 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.

With the main building on Olmsted Road closed for a major renovation, the session will be held at the Scarsdale Alternative School Wayside Lane next to the Girl Scout House. Please register at scarsdalelibrary.org or call 914-722-1302.
