‘A film as sweet as it is sad, as pertinent as it is absurd.’

EMPIRE

‘Witty, poignant, marvellously composed and shot, moving and even weirdly gripping.’

THE GUARDIAN

Ben Sharrock’s melancholic comedy Limbo is a funny and poignant cross-cultural satire that subtly sews together the hardship and hope of the refugee experience. 

Omar is a promising young musician separated from his Syrian family and stuck on a remote Scottish island. Barred from working and forced to take ridiculous cultural-awareness classes, he awaits the fate of his asylum request.  

The limitless landscape of the Scottish islands is expertly juxtaposed with the lack of options for oud-playing new arrival Omar. With pitch perfect wit and crisp observation, Limbo shines a light on the hearts and lives of those at the centre of a refugee crisis that most of us only experience through headlines.
