In this special event screening Refugee Week Exeter have collaborated with Exeter Phoenix to present a preview of the highly anticipated Limbo.

Limbo is a wry and poignant observation of the refugee experience, set on a fictional remote Scottish island where a group of new arrivals await the results of their asylum claims. It centres on Omar, a young Syrian musician who is burdened by his grandfather’s oud, the king of Arabic music instruments, which he has carried all the way from his homeland.

This beautiful gem of a film offers a humanist approach to the asylum process which is as gentle and intimate as the characters centred within.

Members of the Refugee Week Exeter team will be present between screenings. To find out more about National Refugee Week and the work being done in in Devon please visit Refugee Support Devon’s website here >>
