Limbo (film) – Sat 26th Feb, 7.30pm
Saturday, February 26, 2022, 7:30 pm
Ben Sharrock’s critically adored Limbo (2020) 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 cinema shines a light on the hearts and lives of those at the centre of a crisis that is mostly only experienced through the headlines.
103 mins. English with subtitles.
Because the film relates to real people undergoing real hardships, in the UK and around the globe, we’ve
invited special guests for a post-screening presentation followed by a Q&A. Hannah from The Highlands Supports Refugees and Katy from Moray Supports Refugees will lead and facilitate. Members from the local community group Keeping it Real, who were formed to explore themes of race and whiteness, will also be there for the discussion.
[There will be no social-distancing at the event, but everyone attending must wear a mask unless exempt. Masks can only be removed when drinking water. NHS COVID Passes are not required for admittance to this event.]
