OUROBOROS IS AN HOMAGE TO GAZA, BASED ON THE ETERNAL RETURN

Ouroboros is acclaimed visual artist Basma Alsharif's first feature film.

This 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.
