English

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. However, having left her family behind for her career and striving 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 headed for an emotional and artistic breakdown.

______________

IT

Mitra, un’artista ambiziosa, madre e moglie quarantenne, s’imbarca nel sogno di una vita: fare un film sulla sua eroina, la leggendaria cantante del mondo arabo Oum Kulthum. Il suo obiettivo è esplorare le lotte, i sacrifici e il prezzo del successo pagato da un’artista donna che ha vissuto in una società conservatrice e dominata da uomini. Durante le riprese del film, tuttavia, l’improvvisa scomparsa di suo figlio adolescente e la crescente difficoltà nel catturare l’essenza di Oum Kulthum come donna, come artista, come mito, portano Mitra a una profonda crisi emotiva e artistica.
