Thursday 12 September at 9.45 pm at the cinema Castello (via Calvino, 1) will be “Styx by Wolfgang Fischer, on the personal odyssey of a woman on a solo journey with unexpected implications, the flagship event of the second day of the Festival of the Cinema di Mare , a film festival dedicated to the relationship between man and the sea that will be held until 15 September in Castiglione della Pescaia (Grosseto).

In "Styx " , Wolfgang Fischer tells of a doctor who decides to take a break from work and set sail alone on her sailboat from Gibraltar to an unspoiled island in the Pacific Ocean. But such an extreme adventure seems to be destined to conceal something deeper. His journey seems to flow serenely until, after a bad storm, he runs into a fishing boat full of African refugees in serious difficulty. As the situation becomes increasingly dramatic, the woman will therefore find herself at a crossroads: try to help the men and women stuck on the boat or stand aside and wait for adequate help.

The activities of the Festival will open already in the late afternoon, at 6.30 pm at the Italo Calvino Library (Piazza Garibaldi) where Claudio Carabba will introduce " In Search of Europe " by Alessandro Scillitani, who will be present in the room for the occasion. With the approach of Brexit and the wind of nationalism, in the documentary the historian and skipper Piero Tassinari and the writer Paolo Rumiz show us what it means to be European, what Europe is, and then trace where it was born. Thus begins a journey in the Mediterranean, between Turkey and Greece, in search of Europe. Where is Europe? Everywhere and nowhere, someone says.

At 9.15 pm at the cinema Castello, space for the short film with the screening of " Also the fish cry " by Francesco Cabras and Alberto Molinari who reconstructs, through interviews with fishermen, the story of the Adriatic, a sea that until a few decades ago held in its waters a patrimony of wealth and biodiversity and that today finds itself impoverished and sick due, above all, to the excessive impact exerted by aggressive fishing methods, such as the bottom train A soundtrack to the film of the Apulian musicians who, performing ballads traditional, tell of the sea life of the past. All in the frame of the most characteristic and enchanting places of Puglia. The short film is one of the three finalists of the third edition of the "Mauro Mancini" film award, named in memory of the Tuscan journalist, the historic signature of La Nazione and a passionate sailor.

The initiative is promoted by Quelli dell'Alfieri and Comune di Castiglione della Pescaia with the collaboration of Festival dei Popoli, Legambiente's Clorofilla Film Festival and the Sailing Club of Castiglione della Pescaia.
