First look: MUBI’s Limbo heads to London Film festival
Staff Reporter | On 04, Oct 2020
MUBI is bringing Limbo to the London Film Festival this October, and we’ve got our first look at the streaming service’s latest acquisition.
The film, from Pikadero director Ben Sharrock, follows a Syrian musician waiting out his asylum request on a remote Scottish island. A wry and poignant observation of the refugee experience starring rising UK star Amir El-Masry, the timely comedy-drama was picked for the Cannes Official Selection this year, even though the festival didn’t take place. It has since gone on to earn praise as the Toronto International Film Festival, and will now continue its festival virtually in London.
The film streams on BFI Player as part of the Journey section of the festival at 6.30pm on Friday 16th October. It will then go on to be released in the UK by MUBI at a later date.
