‘Limbo’ is an attempt to escape from the dictatorship of the daily routine and to go deep into the oneiric space. This film is a metaphorical journey to the artist’s own universe. Also, it can be considered as an act of escapism.
‘Limbo’ was shot on a smartphone. Normally, a smartphone is used to communicate with the outer world, but here it was used to explore the inner world.
