Mona al Said (1986) منى السعيد

Mona al Said (منى السعيد) dances in a scene from the 1986 Egyptian film ‘Koum El Shoqafa’ (كوم الشقافة) which starred Said Saleh, Magda Nour El Din, Hisham Abdel Hamid and Shahera.  In this scene Mona al Said is in the audience in a nightclub and is persuaded by the singer to get up and dance.  Mona could dance in a sack and still mesmerise the audience!
Background trivia: Koum al Shoqafa/Kom al Shukafa are ancient catacombs near Alexandria in Egypt. The name means ‘Hill of Shards’ and dates back to the time when people used to bring food in pottery containers to the catacombs as offerings.  As they didn’t want to take the containers home again they would break them and leave the pieces (shards) at the site.
