Ouroboros, Basma Alsharif's first film feature, is an homage to the Gaza Strip based on the eternal return. This experimental film follows a man through five different landscapes, upending mass-mediated representation of trauma.

 

A journey outside of time, marking the end as the beginning, exploring the subject of the eternal return and how we move forward when all is lost.
