NOURHANE, A CHILD’S DREAM
A film by MAY KASSEM
SYNOPSIS: Nourhane was a singer and actress in the 1940s, 50s, and 60s. She put a sudden end to her career and retreated away from the stage in the mid-60s. From that point on, she never spoke about her past, nor did she sing. Her grand-daughter goes into the world of filmmaking and at the age of 21 discovers her grandmother’s past. From that point on, she is on a quest to find out as much as possible about her grandmother’s career and life, and particularly about why her grandmother left a career at its height. Layers and layers of stories emerge through interviews, voice-overs, drawings, and animated sequences in a film centered around passion, and love.
