Limbo

Sunday 27th September / 4PM @ The Maltings Theatre & Cinema

On the outskirts of a small Southern Danish port town, teenager Sara, connects with schoolteacher Karen in a way that transforms them both. Shot and set in Nakskov, the small Southern Danish island where director Anna Sofie Hartmann grew up, Limbo is a quietly audacious debut film, which thrives in the rich atmosphere it creates. Intercutting extended documentary sequences with the fictionalised real-life chatter of those lingering beyond the margins of the frame, Limbo creates a world in which the state of youth and the uncertainty of being are brought into question.
