Community Cinergy screenings continue with Limbo

Limbo-602x401

Limbo, the acclaimed debut film by Norwegian writer and director Maria Sødahl, will be the next selection of the Community Cinergy series of movie screenings, hosted by the trinidad+tobago film festival (ttff) and bpTT, in association with the Callaloo Company.

The screening, which is free, takes place on Saturday 26th May at the Callaloo mas camp in Chaguaramas from 8pm. There will be a lime beforehand, from 6pm, with food and drinks on sale.

Released in 2010, Limbo is the emotionally charged story of Sonia, a young Norwegian woman who moves to Trinidad with her family in the 1970s. When she discovers her husband—who works in the oil industry—is having an affair with a colleague, Sonia’s already fragile world shatters, and she must find a way to put the pieces back together.

Shot on location in T&T with an international cast that included a number of local actors, Limbo won the prize for best director at the Montreal Film Festival. It was a selection of the ttff/11, and opened the European Film Festival in Port of Spain last October.
