Youth Dreams, Style B - أحلام الشباب

$2,200.00 $2,750.00

Syrian-born singer Farid Al-Atrash emerged as one of Egyptian cinema's most beloved stars in this, his second film. Farid plays a young man from a wealthy family who becomes involved in a love triangle with a neighbor (Madiha Yousri) who harbors dreams of playing the piano, and an exotic belly dancer (Tahiya Karioka) who schemes to win his heart.

Farid and actress Tahiya Karioka share star billing in this poster, the former in a romantic cameo-style image and the latter dazzling in an exotic belly dancer's pose. The title is a dramatic burst of red lettering contained within a warm yellow sheet music-themed emblem at center. The minimal use of color and on-theme imagery together create a look that is elegant, modern and wonderfully representative of the era.
