Basma Alsharif’s feature film Ouroboros (2017) is an homage to the Gaza Strip based on the eternal return. A journey following one man through five different landscapes marks the end as the beginning, forgetting as the way forward, and the failure of civilization. This screening is presented in conjunction with Lebanese artist Akram Zaatari’s exhibition, The Fold, on view now at the CAC through February 10th, 2019. Presented by David Serio, Educator & Public Programming Specialist, Arab American National Museum, (Dearborn, Michigan). (Various languages with subtitles.) (77 min)
