Limbo is released in cinemas this weekend, and it’s one of our favourite films of the year so far. Ben Sharrock has crafted a film that is moving, pertinent and political, and yet to counteract the more upsetting themes at play, it’s incredibly sweet and funny. Much of that pathos, and the film’s tricky tonality – comes through the performance of supporting lead Vikash Bhai, so needless to say, we were thrilled to have the chance to interview the actor to discuss this brilliant piece of work, while looking back over his career to date – and what the future may hold.
Watch the full interview with Vikash Bhai here:
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.
Limbo is released on July 30th
