About The Film

Life in Limbo

Directed by Sakae Ishikawa

How would you feel if the only place you knew as home had its very existence threatened? 'Life in Limbo' is a portrait of an archaeological town set on the banks of the Tigris River in Southeastern Turkey. Once comprised of caves carved in the dramatic cliffs along the Tigris, a few residents still carry on in their ancestors' homes. Theirs is a simple way of life and their love for their small town is strong. But this majestic place may soon disappear underwater because of a megadam being built upstream.
