Egypt, a Love Story

Souad Zaki was a popular Jewish singer in 1940’s Egypt, married to a Muslim musician, and after immigrating to Israel, lived a double life: in the mornings she was a cleaning lady and in the evenings a singer. Souad’s granddaughter Iris brings her tempestuous story to life in a hybrid cinematic project that crosses nations, cultures, and religions, bringing together sweeping periodical plotlines with the intimate documentary journey of the director and her father, into their complex identity.
