Adib Qaddoura and Ighraa star in one of the most celebrated and important films in Syrian cinema history. A simple farmer comes to realize that feudal authority and colonial oppression are identical when his land is seized and he's brutally tortured by the Gendarmerie. On his release, he becomes a leader in the struggle against the regime. This acclaimed film based on a story by Haidar Haidar and directed by Nabil El-Maleh won numerous international film awards, including an Appreciation Award at the 1972 Locarno Film Festival, Appreciation Award at the 1972 Carlo Vivari Festival, and Jury Prize at the 1977 Damascus International Film Festival.
Ighraa reclines in a casual pose, wearing a black romper and holding a cigarette and magazine. Two images from the film provide more context for the story: Qaddoura and Ighraa together in an embrace, and together again armed and ready. The yellow title against a black background adds visual pop to this in-demand film collectible.
