Floor Three, Susan and John Hess Family Gallery and Theater

In her first feature length film Ouroboros, Basma Alsharif pays homage to the Gaza Strip, upending mass-mediated representations of trauma. Journeying outside of time, the allegorical narrative is based on the eternal return and how we move forward when all is lost.

April 30: 3 pm
Screening followed by a conversation with Basma Alsharif and Sara Raza, Guggenheim UBS Map Curator, Middle East & North Africa, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
