Stafford Film Theatre: Limbo
Ben Sharrock / UK 2020 / 104 min / Cert 12A
Recently nominated for two BAFTA awards for Best British Film and Best Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer, Limbo is a wry and poignant observation of the refugee experience, set on a fictional remote Scottish island where a group of new arrivals await the results of their asylum claims. Amir El-Masry gives an intelligent performance as Omar, a young Syrian musician who is burdened by his grandfather's out, which he has carried all the way from his homeland. The director spent time working for an NGO in refugee camps where he formed a network of friends whose personal stories inspired the film.
