DESCRIPTION:

Recently nominated for two BAFTAs (Best British Film, Best Debut by a British Writer) Limbo is a wry, funny and poignant observation of the refugee experience, set on a fictional Scottish island where a group of new arrivals await the outcomes of their asylum claims.

Ben Sharrock’s critically adored film is a wry, funny and poignant cross-cultural satire that subtly sews together the hardship and hope of the refugee experience.

Set on a fictional remote Scottish island, it follows a group of new arrivals as they await the results of their asylum claims. Among them is Omar (Amir El-Masry), a young Syrian musician struggling with the guilt, regret and grief that comes with leaving his former life behind.

This deadpan comedy-drama from a bold new voice in British film shines a light on the hearts and lives of those at the centre of a crisis that is mostly only experienced through the headlines.

“witty, poignant, marvellously composed” The Guardian
