Art After Dark
November 8, 2018 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm Griswold House
Art After Dark is very pleased to present the latest film by acclaimed international artist and filmmaker Shirin Neshat. A film within a film, Looking for Oum Kulthum is the plight of Mitra, an Iranian woman artist/filmmaker living in exile, as she embarks on capturing the life and art of the legendary Egyptian singer and diva, Oum Kulthum. Mitra’s film explores the struggles, sacrifices and the price of Oum Kulthum’s success as a female artist in a male dominated society. Having left her family behind for her career, and in her effort 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 caught in an emotional and artistic breakdown.
