Singaporean filmmaker Anthony Chen’s first English-language project assumes the intimate perspective of a woman in limbo.

Living in self-exile on a Greek island, Jacqueline (Cynthia Erivo), a Liberian refugee, spends her days wandering, withdrawn from others while barely making ends meet. She gradually emerges from her shell when she is befriended by an American tour guide (Alia Shawkat), but her unspeakable trauma continues to haunt her.

Brilliantly restrained and concise in its storytelling, Drift is an engrossing character study and a touching depiction of a life-changing friendship.

The screening on Thu 4 April will be followed by a Q&A with screenwriter Susanne Farrell.

"A consistently terrific Cynthia Erivo anchors this stereotype-defying refugee story" Variety
