This is a film poster designed by Mohammad Abdel Aziz for the 1964 Youssef Chahine 100-minute color film Dawn of a New Day [fagr yom gedid] with story and screenplay by Samir Nasry, dialogue by Abdel Rahman El-Sharqawy, cinematography by Abel Aziz Fahmy and starring the late Sanaa Gamil (1930-2002) as Nayed. Plot summary: A varied group of bourgeois people were living in poverty in Cairo after political conditions turned against them. They included Nayed (Sanaa Gamil), a women in her 40s. She met a young man named Tareq (Seif El Dine) and was drawn to him even though he was from a completely different social class; she did not choose a man from her own class, not even Abu Al-Ala who was trying to get close to her. Tareq was still a student at the university living in a humble room on an upper floor and studying engineering. The boy had to go abroad for three years to complete his studies. He discovered that Nayed was treating him as a substitute for a small boy who had died years ago. This is what started her relationship with a poor man, but he was unable to correct the situation. Nayed tried to obtain the money to give to her beloved so he could complete his studies, working as a secretary at the press office her brother managed, but then she suddenly decided to end her association with this boy, who was no more than twenty-two years of age; they said goodbye to each other at the Cairo Station. A large part of this film is taken up with footage of the two of them in a symbolic conversation while climbing the narrow spiral staircase at the Cairo Tower.
