Controversial Deghaidi still screens sex, defames girls
Considered one of the most provocative directors of current times, controversial Egyptian director Enas al Deghaidi will still be the cause of various strong arguments in the Arab World with her latest project.
Deghaidi, who is mostly recognized for her courage in addressing women's issues, has convinced Yusra to star in her upcoming movie, after a series of successful films the two worked on together since the 90s.
The daily Bayan newspaper reported in its Saturday issue that al Deghaidi was able to talk Yusra into starring in her new movie "Nisaa' Bila Tajarob" (Women Without Experience), marking the fifth cooperation between the two. The four movies were, "Imra'a Wahida La Takfi" (One Woman Is Not Enough) in 1990, "Dantella" in 1998, "Kalam al Leil" (Night Talks) in 1999, and "Al Warda al Hamra" (The Red Rose) in 2001.
Once asked about the frequent and provocative sex scenes she uses in her movies, Deghaidi answered, "I try to deal with the social issues, however, they always, in one way or another, transfer themselves into one major issue: sex!!"
Earlier in May, the director was found innocent in the lawsuit raised against her for defaming girls in Egypt in her most recent movie "Muthakkarat Murahiqah" (Adolescent Memoirs).
The court has said that, "the director has not harmed Egyptian girls directly when she described them as crossing the red lines as was stated by one of the actresses in the movie."
On the other hand, Yusra recently accepted 100 thousand pounds instead of 400 thousand, to star in Yusef Shahin's latest movie "Al Ghadab" (Anger). – Albawaba.com
