This is a 26.5" x 38.5" Egyptian poster designed by Focus to promote the 2004 Ooussama Fawzi film I Love the Cinema [baheb al-sima] starring Youssef Osman as Na'eem based on a story by Hani Fawzi with cinematography by Tarek El-Telmisany. This is controversial film narrated by Sherif Mounir as the voice of the six-year-old boy Na'eem as he recalls his upbringing. The story is about a Coptic family in 1960s Shubra in the time of Gamal Abdel Nasser's presidency; it pushes a number of religious, sexual and ethical boundaries as a 40-year-old man remembers childhood conflicts with a father who assured him his love of film would surely lead to his eternal damnation. Some Copts in Egypt were offended by what they saw as a tendency to ridicule Christianity; they tried though legal action to prevent it being shown.
