Batcombe Film Society “Limbo” (2020), a poignant film by Ben Sharrock
February 4 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Limbo is the story of a group of single male refugees living far from their disparate cultural roots in a functional but stark hostel on Uist ‘Limbo’. They live with a system that is seemingly designed to break them so that they will ask to be sent home and Sharrock movingly suggests the growing sense of anger and fear. This is wonderful opportunity to see a film that the Guardian describes as “witty, poignant, marvellously composed and shot, moving and even weirdly gripping”. “Despite an elegant deadpan style established from the outset, Sharrock soon gets you to invest in the characters and care deeply about what happens to them. Limbo is about refugees and asylum seekers in Britain, and it’s a bracingly internationalist and non-parochial piece of work: film-making with a bold view on the world but also as gentle and intimate as a much-loved sitcom.” 7.15pm for 7.30pm, for further information please contact Ann Biddle 01749 850307 Take a look at the official trailer: https://mubi.com/films/limbo-2019-ben-sharrock
