With a pre-recorded introduction by the Director.
Sharrock’s debut film is set on a fictional remote Scottish island, where a group of new arrivals wait for their asylum applications to be processed. Director, who spent time working in refugee camps in Syria, concentrates on four single men, the ‘category’ most likely to encounter mistrust and experience the sharpest sense of dislocation, and paints a wry and poignant portrait of the refugee experience.
“For a film that is so infused with sadness… Limbo is remarkably funny – a gentle, empathic kind of humour that is derived from the men’s bleak existences, without mocking them.” Wendy Ide, Observer
