Pictured is a 27" x 39" poster designed by Hassan Mazhar Gasour to
promote the 1972 Youssef Chahine 102-minute color film The
Sparrow [al-asfour] starring Seif El Din, based on a story by
Lotfi al-Khawali with screenplay and dialogue by Lotfi al-Khawali and
Youssef Chahine and cinematography by Mostafa Imam. According to a
critics poll taken at the 2013 Dubayy International Film Festival this
is one of the 100 most important Arab films. Plot summary: This film
made in Algeria and Egypt is a reaction to the Arab loss of the 1967
war with Israel. It has a spirit of pride and patriotic conviction
where director Chahine attempts to show the war was lost from within
due to corruption and weakness in the ruling classes. In one of the
film's several narrative lines the character Baheyya [Mohsena Tewfik]
leads defiant demonstrations, rejects the defeat and demands that
Gamal Abdel Nasser return to the government after stepping down. The
sparrow motif symbolizes the brave and innocent Arab peoples who have
become victims of national and international circumstances.
