Synopsis of Upcoming Film: Ashiqat al-Cinema (Women who Loved Cinema) 2003 (116 min.)
“Women who loved Cinema” is about six strong-willed women whose adventurous streak changed the face of the film industry in early twentieth century Egypt- a time when the country was, despite the liberal ripples, still steeped in conservative tradition. This film shows how these women, different as they were in class and social background, broke taboos and dismissed conventional wisdom to fufill their overpowering passion for filmmaking.
