A Woman for Sale - امرأة برسم البيع


Two women who work together making clothing are also good friends. When one meets a new man, the other has her doubts about his intentions. When the man asks the woman to visit him at his apartment, her friend advises her to refuse and to be very careful with this new and potentially perilous relationship. This film was also released under the title A Woman Who Doesn't Sell Love. Syrian actress-entertainer Ighraa produced, directed, and stars with Jacqueline.

This poster spotlights two images from the film. At top, Ighraa and Jacqueline lounge at the beach; at bottom, belly dancer Zeina Raafat poses provocatively. The colorful title and credits add distinctive pop. The film's unique historic status – produced and directed by a woman, when that was very uncommon at the time – and its willingness to tackle important gender issues makes this poster a sought-after collectible.
