The Winona Film Society presents “Styx,” a drama/ thriller directed and written by Wolfgang Fischer, at the Winona Arts Center on Friday, November 22, at 7 p.m.
“Styx” depicts the transformation of a strong woman torn from her contented world during a sailing trip. When she becomes the only person to come to the aid of a group of refugees shipwrecked on the high seas, she is shown the limits of her importance and of the empathy of her cultural milieu. She is left slipping impotently from one nightmare to the next, and by the end she is forced to recognize that there is no way to counter the cruelties of real life. Only chance can save her. The film is from Germany in 2018 and has a running time of 95 minutes.
The Winona Arts Center is located at 228 East Fifth Street. Tickets are $5 at the door. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. You may bring your own treats and beverages.
