The Drought is the wrenching story of a devastating disaster that displaces whole towns. A husband finds himself torn between his wife and a childhood friend he is reunited with amid the suffering. This is a historically and culturally important film that critiques state’s troubled interventions in rural areas. The film stars celebrated Egyptian dramatic actor Shukry Sarhan and notable actresses Samiha Ayoub and Soheir El-Morshedy.
This poster is visually unique and a clear outlier from the usual style and substance of Egyptian film art. The vivid and somber image of Samiha Ayoub's character watches over all, with the teeming throngs of the drought-displaced peasants rendered in a striking Expressionist style in the background. Lush red, green, and gold colors add to the emotional impact.
