The Egyptian star said to “Al Khaleej 365” that she is happy that the film festivals will return again, especially as she touched the keenness of the El Gouna Film Festival administration to implement all precautionary measures and take all measures to protect festival guests from infection with the emerging Corona virus.
She added, “Life must go on, but it is necessary to implement all measures to protect artists and the public from any threat to their lives, because cinema is an important tributary of cultural life and its return is necessary and inevitable.”
Regarding her character in the movie “Curfew,” she said: “I embody the character of a woman named (Faten) who gets out of prison after serving a 20-year sentence, to find Cairo under a curfew, and I was keen to appear with difficult and influential features, so that the viewer is affected by the character.”
And she continued: “When I leave my house, I completely forget Ilham Shaheen, the truth, and unite with the character that I play, and I do not care to appear on the screen as if I am beautiful, but what is important is that the audience believes me and is influenced by the characters that I present.”
When asked about her opinion on the term “women’s cinema”, she said: “I completely reject this term, but at the same time it must be recognized that there are works that discuss important women’s issues, and the reason for my rejection of the term women’s cinema is that the man is present in a woman’s life, and it may be the cause of happiness and perhaps unhappiness.” .
She explained the reason for her departure from the “Women’s Cinema” festival, saying: “I was enthusiastic about the idea at the beginning and I was the honorary president of the first session, but after a while I discovered that the issue is difficult, and the establishment and organization of a festival contains many complicated matters and needs great time and effort.”
It is noteworthy that the movie “Curfew”, which Elham Shaheen returns to the cinema, is directed by Amir Ramses, and a large number of stars such as Amina Khalil, Mahmoud Al-Laithi, Arifa Abdel-Rasoul and Ahmed Magdy participate in its starring.
