The Three Disappearances of Soad Hosni

The Three Disappearances of Soad Hosni


Sundance Institute :  “Actress and star of the Egyptian cinema from 1959 to 1991, Soad Hosni commits suicide in London in 2001 at the age of 59. Her tragic end overwhelms the entire Arab world stunned by the death of “Zuzu”, their charming and sensual Arabic Cinderella. The Egyptian authorities don’t know what to do with the body of a suicide star, a taboo death in the orient. This disappearance, which conceals others, reveals the tensions around the representation of the Arab women today, in the orient as well as in the west.”
