With Limbo, a much awaited film coming to theaters, Limbo was selected in Cannes, Toronto and San Sebastian last year, as well as a BAFTA nomination. It tells the story of a young Syrian expatriate and musician who ends up on an island off the Scottish coast. Migrants play the main role, not Europeans.
Limbo depicts the callousness of situations in which an alien – especially an expatriate – can meet in a humorous and awkward way. Amir El-Masry is a British actor with Egyptian roots. For him, the most important thing is understanding between cultures.
Limbo has just debuted in the USA and is slated to premiere in Europe this summer when the cinema will slowly reopen to its audience.
