Struggle on the Nile - صراع في النيل


Three of Egypt's most acclaimed performers share the screen in this epic drama written by Ali El Zorkani and directed by Atef Salem, marking one of the greatest collections of cinema talent in regional history. The incomparable and world-famous Omar Sharif and the exquisitely charming Rushdy Abaza star as two young men from the countryside tasked with sailing up the Nile to Cairo, on a business mission to elevate the status of their village. Their task is frustrated by a business rival who will stop at nothing to destroy their plans, and a scheming carnival dancer played by Hind Rostom, who they discover hiding in the cargo hold.

The focal point of this striking poster is Sharif and Rostom in a passionate embrace, with Abaza in a dramatic pose alongside. The Nile flows along the bottom of the image and a golden sky provides both background and a framing element. The imagery and emotional energy of this poster is sultry, provocative and very well suited as an iconic celebration of the art of Egyptian cinema.
