Limbo (12A) - screening
Summerhall - Cinema
On a fictional remote Scottish island, gifted young musician Omar and his fellow Syrian asylum seekers endure a puzzling cultural-awareness lesson from an oddball pair of locals. Separated from home and family and burdened by the weight of his grandfather’s oud, which he has carried all the way from his homeland, Omar waits in limbo for others to decide his future.
A deadpan comedy-drama, Limbo is an offbeat observation of the refugee experience.
Director: Ben Sharrock
