Faten Hamama's Honor

Jocelyne Saab  |  Cinema  |  2014  |  Lebanon
Producer: "Director: Jocelyne Saab Producer: Also Jocelyne saab"
Faten Hamama’s apprehension, while she waits to receive a Doctor Honoris  Causa, provokes flashbacks and questions related to her first aesthetic and cinematographic emotion, when she sees in a film the pioneer of silent Egyptian cinema, actress and producer Assia Dagher. Between fiction and documentary, the film traces Faten's history as lived with this mother of cinema.
