"The Boat is Full"
Directed by Markus Imhoof
We follow the plight
of a group of Jewish refugees, desperately fleeing the holocaust, who have crossed over
into neutral Switzerland. It is the summer of 1942 and the Swiss government, alarmed
at the vast numbers of people fleeing Nazi Germany, has set up immigration policies so
stringent that they have declared the country "a full lifeboat." Complications
arise when a Swiss innkeeper's wife takes in a group of frightened refugees. A haunting
film from noted Swiss Filmmaker Markus Imhoof. "Virtually a flawless
movie….One I will not soon forget!" (Jeffrey Lyons). French and German with
English subtitles. 100 minutes.
