Director Hisham Abdel Khalek released the first teaser for the documentary
Saleh was Egypt's first prima ballerina, a graduate of the Bolshoi Academy of Ballet in Moscow and Cairo's Academy of Arts in Egypt, and former dean of the Higher Institute of Ballet, as well as a founding director of the New Cairo Opera House (1987-1988).
In an interview released by Ahram Online on 5 January, the director revealed that while the film will focus on Saleh, it will also touch on the portrayal of the cultral field through the eras of presidents Gamal Abdel Nasser, Anwar Sadat and Hosni Mubarak.
He added that while "a large part of the footage will look into her achievements, the film will also include interviews with many personalities from the cultural scene.
"We will approach Ahlam Younis, the dean of the Academy of Arts, actress Nelly Karim, as well as Saleh's dance colleagues. We will talk about Saleh's career in the former Soviet Union and the USA and her acting experience in Ibnaty Al Aziza (Dear Daughter), a 1971 movie directed by Helmy Rafla, starring Roushdy Abaza and Nagat," Abdel Khalek said in the interview.
The film will include historical footage, provided by Saleh and institutions mentioned in the production. Abdel Khalek also hopes to get a hold of some of the videos that could be incorporated into the production.
The film is scheduled to be released in summer 2016.
