Appointment with the President (1990) - (Kamal Al-Shennawi) Egyptian one-sheet
This is a 27.25" x 38.75" Egyptian poster designed by al-Khad for the 1990 Mohamed Radi film Appointment with the President based on story, screenplay and dialogue by Ahmad Al-Khatib and starring Elham Shaheen as Magda Kamel. Plot summary: With bribery, a big construction company was able to get a permit to demolish an entire residential neighborhood and to build luxury apartment towers on the site. A member of the People's Assembly (Magda Kamel) took up the cause, but during one of her meetings with the president of the republic while the People's Assembly was in session, corrupt officials asked to meet with her in Aswan to see the documents proving the corruption of the officials; they tried to spoil her case and get her removed from office for stealing the documents. The train trip to Aswan is where most of the action takes place; this is one of the great Egyptian train movies, although the poster gives no hint of that.
