This week we're talking about Limbo (2020), a British indie film written and directed by Ben Sharrock. It's a story about a Syrian musician, Omar, who is seeking asylum in the UK on a (very cold) Scottish island. He and his three housemates take cultural awareness classes and wait in a near-empty house for their asylum claims to be processed. We chat about the deadpan humour, the characters and the unexpected 'Friends' cameo. We were also lucky enough to ask Amir El-Masry, who plays Omar, some questions about his time preparing for the role and shooting the film. It sounded like a lot of fun. Enjoy!
Limbo is available to watch on MUBI
Next episode's film: Ponyo (2008) directed by Hayao Miyazaki
