Production Company: Proaction Film

Project Logline:

They met 30 years ago: Ighra’, the sex symbol of Syrian cinema and the first Arab woman to appear nude on screen; he the politically engaged doc maker. She said, "We have something in common; you'll find out one day!" Thirty years later, they meet.

Director's Quote:

It is her character, her personality that deserves attention. It is where the seduction lies, certainly for the “filmmaker.” She emblematizes, to the letter, the state of Arab societies. Whether regarding the status of women or the rise of religious extremism, she has accompanied, since the years of her glory, the astounding decline we have all been enduring.
