This is a 27" x 19.5" Egyptian poster made to promote the 1986 Youssef
Chahine film The Sixth Day [al-yom al-sades] starring the
Franco-Italian singer Dalida (Iolanda Cristina Gigliotti 1933-1987)
based on a novel by Andree Chedid with screenplay by Youssef Chahine
and cinematography by Mohsen Nasr. Plot summary: This film tells a
story set during the 1947 cholera epidemic in Cairo, when it was
believed that anyone infected with the disease would die within six
days. Sadiqa [Dalida] is a woman who leaves Cairo on a Nile vessel to
bury relatives. She has lost everyone in her family and her only
remaining hope is her grandson, but he is also afflicted with the
disease; when he dies she kills herself, even though she has a
young companion on her Nile voyage named Okka [Mohsen Mohieddin] who
has fallen in love with her despite the difference in their ages.
