About the Event
Limbo film trailer HERE
Travis, a jaded detective, arrives in the remote outback town of Limbo to investigate the cold case murder of local Indigenous girl Charlotte Hayes 20 years ago. As truths about the murder begin to unfold, the detective gains a new insight into the unsolved case from the victim’s fractured family, the surviving witnesses and the reclusive brother of the chief suspect. A poignant, intimate journey into the complexities of loss and the impact of the justice system on Aboriginal families in Australia.
Shot in Coober Pedy this film is an instant classic. Great script, perfromances, directing with themes of loss, family, grief, redemption, love, renewal; it really is an amazing film and true Cinema. Don't miss this on the big screen.
“Simon Baker is Superb as a Jaded Detective in Ivan Sen’s Visually Striking Outback Procedural... A bracingly atmospheric setting... Sen is a humanistic filmmaker who believes in personal redemption.”The Hollywood Reporter, David Rooney“
“A Starkly Atmospheric Outback Noir... This is outback noir –oblique, secretive and as hard-boiled as the ground is hard-baked –and Sen wears it well... Simon Baker [is] initially near-unrecognizable and never better... No empty space feels emotionally uncharged.”Variety, Guy Lodge
"Terrific, atmospheric... A distinctive work, both visually and in terms of its intriguingly detached outback noir storytelling...”Screen International, Wendy Ide
Screening on Reconciliation Day. Ivan Zen is a First Nations film maker and this film perfectly captures the history of police negligence when it comes to disapperances and violence against indigenous women but its much more than that. It's multi layered with great pacing and feel
It's just a great Australian film, an instant classic, which everyone should see on the big screen.
Screening with the support and collaboration of Heritage Services at Council
