Film & Talk: Looking for Oum Kulthum

A film within a film, Shirin Neshat’s second feature film, Looking for Oum Kulthum, captures the plight of an Iranian woman artist/filmmaker living in exile, as she embarks on a project about the life and art of the legendary female singer of the Arab world, Oum Kulthum. Much like her subject, the filmmaker faces the struggles and sacrifices that a woman must pay if she dares to cross the lines of a conservative, male-dominated society. The screening will be followed by a conversation with Neshat and Azari.
