Exploring the nature of story-telling and playfully manipulating our perception of time and place, Basma al-Sharif’s short films are self-contained journeys that transport, hypnotise, lull, and shake. Developing her practice between the Middle East, U.S., and Europe, al-Sharif’s films speculate on what home looks like, and what having to leave it produces. In her films, home is a landscape, a body, a song, and ultimately something that is felt rather than understood. Often centring on the Gaza Strip, the place that is the closest and least accessible to the artist, her films rely on a subtle humour to look past the present and into the future.
