No Direction Home x LIMBO

Live stand-up comedy online, marking the release of critically acclaimed film LIMBO, hosted by MUBI and Counterpoints Arts.

Before the critically acclaimed film LIMBO hits cinemas on 30 July, enjoy a night of stand-up comedy with No Direction Home comics from refugee and migrant backgrounds. Along with your host Mo Omar, the night will be introduced by Vikash Bhai, star of LIMBO, Ben Sharrock’s new film following a group of asylum seekers on a fictional remote Scotitish island.

Plus performances from No Direction Home stand-ups Abdul Tahhan, Selam Amare, Loraine Mponela and Krzysia Balinska!

LIMBO is a wry, funny and poignant cross-cultural comedy-drama that sews together the hardship and hope of the refugee experience. Exploring themes spanning guilt, regret and grief that come with leaving one life behind to embark on another, this deadpan comedy-drama from a bold new voice in British film shines a light on the hearts and lives of those at the centre of a crisis that is mostly only experienced through headlines.

LIMBO comes to cinemas on July 30 and exclusively to curated streaming platform MUBI later in the year.

Free: booking required
