This is a 29" x 54" two-piece Egyptian poster designed by Mohammad
Abdel Aziz to promote the 1971 Hussein Kamal film Adrift on the
Nile [thartharah fawq al-Nil] based on a story by Naguib Mahfouz
and starring Adel Adham as Ali. Plot Summary: This is the story of a
simple Egyptian worker Anis [Imad Hamdi], who dislikes the
hypocrisy of the Egyptian government and the illiteracy of the
Egyptian public. He tries to escape the problems in Egypt by smoking
the drug shisha. Anis meets Ragab [Ahmed Ramzi], a former
student, who invites him aboard a small boat on the Nile. There Anis
meets other lower- and middle-class Egyptians who are also smoking
shisha for the same reasons he does. At the end Anis decides to stop
smoking shisha but is soon left alone and deranged in the
streets--almost everyone else in Egypt is stoned!
