策展人筆記

Limbo is supposedly a painful place, a part of the underworld consigned to oblivion. That’s partly true in Ben Sharrock’s follow-up to Pikadero: not much does happen, but this story, set amongst the eternally-waiting immigrants on a bleak Scottish island purgatory, isn’t easily forgotten. Endless days roll by with only chickens for company as Sharrock hones in on four refugees waiting for rulings on their asylum claims. They’re forced into awkward ‘cultural awareness classes’, but the locals clearly aren’t impressed. Yet time spent here, for the viewer at least, is rewarding: watching the small nuances of the performances, particularly from Amir El-Masry, smiling at the skewed humour which can only come from a place of sorrow, makes the time fly by. Sharrock takes a perspective here which is reminiscent of Kaurismaki at his sharpest and marks himself out with his second film as a talent to watch.

FIONNUALA HALLIGAN

故事大綱

Omar is a promising young musician. Separated from his Syrian family, remote Scottish island awaiting the fate of his asylum request. Due to the plaster-cast on his arm, he cannot play his oud and instead wanders the epic landscapes searching for answers to a complex past and daunting future. He may be stuck, but he is not alone. Omar and his new flatmates attend outrageously misjudged cultural awareness classes and binge the Friends boxset, debating whether Ross and Rachel were on a break or not. Meanwhile Freddie Mercury-obsessed Farhad tries to convince Omar to participate in the local open mic night.

Ben Sharrock

Ben Sharrock studied filmmaking at the Screen Academy Scotland and directed his first short film, Closure, in 2011. This was followed by Lost Serenity (2012), his graduation work The Zealot (2012) and Patata Tortilla (2015), which earned him the Best Drama and Best Writer accolades at the BAFTA New Talent Awards. His first feature film, Pikadero (2015), premiered in New Directors at San Sebastian Festival and landed, among others, the Michael Powell Award for Best British Film at the Edinburgh Film Festival, the FIPRESCI prize at Kiev Festival, and the Cineuropa in Brussels. Limbo was part of the official selection for Cannes 2020, cancelled due to covid-19.
