We are very excited to share that feature film Limbo has been selected as part of the Cannes Film Festival lineup this year. Limbo features 2 Strange Town agency actors- Silvie Furneaux and Lewis Gribben.

The film was shot on the Uists, part of the Outer Hebrides and is about a refugee’s experience.

Omar is a promising young musician. Separated from his Syrian family, he is stuck on a remote Scottish island awaiting the fate of his asylum request. Due to the plaster-cast on his arm, Omar cannot play his oud and instead wanders the epic landscapes searching for answers to a complex past and daunting future.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic the festival is not taking place but the list of films that would have been shown has been announced.
