Under Arrest - التخشيبة

$375.00 $485.00

The beautiful Nabila Ebeid and distinguished Egyptian actor Ahmad Zaki star in this exemplar of Egypt's brief late '70s to early '80s neo-realist era of cinema. Director Atef Al-Tayyeb tells the poignant story of a successful, married female doctor whose life is thrown into turmoil when she's unfairly accused of a crime against a rich man. This important film highlighted the ongoing collapse of social values in Egypt at the time.

The film's drama and sense of social justice is successfully mirrored in this poster's design and imagery, including Ebeid spotlighted amid her arrest by the police. The dark palette and somber emotions of the cast portray the earnest and emotional elements of this important story.
