Hannah Hovitie / Finland / XR Film / 18 min
Hanna Hovitie's Square the Circle is a little circular film about one person’s round trip out to the (un)known universe and into themselves, in search of a sense of belonging. To “square the circle” is an attempt to do the impossible: look into infinity, accept the perpetual passing of time, survive a long dark winter in the Northern Hemisphere or find one’s own place when you don't quite fit in. To be a circle in a world of squares. It's a delightful palette cleanser that poses several thought provoking questions.
