The Three Disappearances of Soad Hosni
11/10/17 7:00 pm£6.50
Egyptian film legend Soad Hosni died in mysterious circumstances in 2001 in London. This film montages archive footage in a compelling portrait of her life. Director Rania Stephan will be in discussion after the screening.
Rania Stephan has been working with film for the last two decades. Stephan’s body of work may at first appear perplexingly heterogeneous—ranging from video art to raw documentary—yet its underlying coherence stems from her country of origin, Lebanon, which stands at a crossroads of cultures and influences, East and West, and remains a place of both exile and return. Stephan focuses on what she calls “the archaeology of images, identity, and memory.”
