A film within a film, Looking for Oum Kulthum is the plight of an Iranian woman artist and filmmaker living in exile, as she embarks on capturing the life and art of the legendary female singer of the Arab world, Oum Kulthum.

Through her difficult journey – not unlike her heroine’s – she has to face the struggles and sacrifices of a woman in a conservative male-dominated society.

Introduced by Shirin Neshat and followed by a reception.

Presented in collaboration with the Magic of Persia Foundation.

Age: 16+
