Ahmad Saleh, a Student Academy Award winning screenwriter, wrote “Circle” to cope with the losses he endured during the conflict in the Middle East.

The short film depicts a young woman in despair, who after experiencing a tragic loss escapes into the seemingly perfect past. She loses herself in vivid memories and starts to neglect her real life. A constant inner struggle emerges between past and present, distorting her perception of reality. The short film combines distinctive long camera movements with sophisticated 3D animation, creating an atmosphere that emphasizes the emotional core of the film.

“Circle” was adapted and shot by Alexander Heringer, a multi-award winning director from Germany, and his cinematographer Pius Neumaier.
