Looking for Oum Kulthum, with director Shirin Neshat

March 30, 2019 @ 7:30 pm 9:00 pm

Sponsored by the Champlain Valley Film Series. Mitra is an ambitious artist in her forties who embarks on her dream project of making a film about the legendary Egyptian singer and diva Oum Kulthum. Her film explores the struggles, sacrifices and the price of Oum Kulthum’s success as a female artist in a male-dominated society. Having left her family behind for her career and in her efforts to capture the essence of Oum Kulthum as a myth, a woman and an artist, Mitra’s own struggles blend with those of the singer and she finds herself caught in an emotional and artistic breakdown.

Introduced by the director, Shirin Neshat.

$6 / under 18 $3.
