Limbo (2023)

ACMI presents

Outback Noir

Ivan Sen | Australia | 2023 | MA15+

Update: Due to unforeseen circumstances, this session has been cancelled.


Join us for a screening of Ivan Sen's new film Limbo, followed by a panel discussion on Outback Noir.

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.

Following the screening will be a discussion led by ACMI's First Nations Curator, Jenna Warwick on Outback Noir, and Country as character and its influence on Ivan Sen's body of work.

Hardbitten outback noir with a compassionate heart... Terrific... A tough, muscular film with the grit of crime, but a heartbeat of compassion.
