Mister Limbo

Directed by: Robert G. Putka

USA/Portugal, 2021, 96m

Florida Premiere

Writer/director Robert G. Putka (Mad, FFF 2016; We Used to Know Each Other, FFF 2019) does it again with this beautifully shot dark comedy of friendship and redemption. Mister Limbo (Hugo de Sousa, this year’s short “The Event”) wakes in a desert—lost and confused—after a skydive. He meets the equally lost Craig (Vig Norris), and the two set out to discover where, and who, they are. Soon they meet other soul-searching survivors of this surreal wasteland who shed light on the power of making amends. As memories deliver hard-hitting emotional moments, the unlikely pair begin to accept where they may be heading. Mister Limbo is an existential exploration on what it means to be a good person in a morally gray world. De Sousa once again delivers an emotionally moving performance doused in tragedy, that teaches us that the hardest person to ask forgiveness from is oneself.
