Glasgow Film Festival
Ouroboros

Fri 2 March 2018

An homage to the Gaza Strip and to the possibility of hope beyond hopelessness. Ouroboros, the symbol of the snake eating its tail, is both end and beginning: death as regeneration. An essay film taking the form of a love story, Ouroboros’ central character is a man with a broken heart who embarks on a circular journey to shed his pain, only to experience it again and again. In the course of a single day, his travel weaves together Native American territories, the ancient Italian city of Matera, a castle in Brittany, and the ruins of the Gaza Strip together into a single landscape.
