Synopsis:
A refreshingly different voice in UK cinema, Scottish writer/director Sharrock won the Michael Powell Award at Edinburgh Film Festival for his debut Pikadero, a quirky love story shot in the Basque language. Limbo has a similar singularity, at once deadpan comedy and also poignant tale of a group of refugees stuck, pending asylum, on a weather-beaten Hebridean outpost, the Uists.

Sharrock cites Elia Suleiman as an inspiration and here too we see a deep humanism behind the wry gaze and a desire to move beyond cross cultural narratives of simple reconciliation. Rising UK star Amir El-Masry impresses as Omar, one of four men in this ‘limbo’ together, who find a bond in the shared strangeness of their situation and distance from their own countries and families.
