SUBMERGENCE PREMIERES IN TORONTO
Wim Wenders‘ next feature SUBMERGENCE will celebrate its World Premiere in the section „Special Presentations“ at this year’s TIFF – Toronto International Film Festival.
The film is a contemporary love story that takes us into the extremely different worlds of its two protagonists. Danielle Flinders (Alicia Vikander) and James More (James McAvoy) are two young people engaged in making the world a safer and better place. They’re both getting ready for a dangerous mission in their respective causes and have chosen to do so in a remote and utterly beautiful hideaway hotel on the French Atlantic Coast in Normandy. When they meet there by chance, falling in love is the last thing on their mind…
SUBMERGENCE is geopolitical in scope. It is dark and light, dangerous and mysterious. It is transparent about the raw attraction and love between human beings and reminds us that our first and primary goal as members of the human race is to love and ultimately protect each other.
