Book Tickets


Basma alSharif’s first feature film is an experimental homage to the Gaza Strip and to the possibility of hope against hopelessness.

Departing from the ancient symbol of the ouroboros – a snake eating its own tail – the film follows a man moving through different landscapes in search of a past lover.

A multilingual journey through time and space reflecting on recurrent patterns of destruction and regeneration, representation and erasure.  

Dir. Basma alSharif | 2017 | 77m | English, Chinook, Italian with English subtitles
