Ice Cream in Glym - ايس كريم في جليم

$200.00 $250.00

Named after a neighborhood in Alexandria, this film is directed by Khairy Beshara and is the story of Seif (played by Amr Diab), who is an aspiring musician and lives with a group of young people looking for better opportunities. When he's fired from his job, through a series of misadventures he ends up in prison and meets a student who inspires him to reconnect with his musical ambitions by performing his songs in the streets.

The photographic design of this poster is almost unique for the genre, combining elements of collage with a high spirited, modern energy. Multiple scenes featuring Amr Diab are arranged in a way that suggests his evolution throughout the film, including dancing with Simone. The poster's title is contained in a graphic that suggests a spilled ice cream. This edition of the poster was printed in Lebanon and it's an intriguing document of trends in fashion, music and social freedoms that emerged in Egypt in the early '90s.
