Director: Wolfgang Fisher
Cast: Susanne Wolff, Gedion Oduor Wekesa
Emergency doctor Rieke (Susanne Wolff) departs the port of Gibraltar and sets course for the idyllic and secluded Ascension Island. En route, she soon encounters a critically damaged boat carrying refugees in desperate need of rescue. Instructed by authorities to hold course and leave them adrift, she’s faced with the ultimate human dilemma – risk punishment by helping or be burdened with the guilt of ignoring their plight. Wolfgang Fischer’s timely moral thriller is one of the most focused and compassionate cinematic depictions of the refugee crisis, winning three awards at Berlin in 2018.
