“The Three Disappearances of Soad Hosni” is an elegy to a rich era of film production in Egypt, seen through the work of one of its most revered actresses. Soad Hosni embodied the complexity of the modern Arab woman. Pieced together exclusively from archival footage of her films, it tells the story of Hosni’s life up until her tragic end in 2001.
