This is a 53" x 78" Egyptian four-piece billboard poster designed by Morteda Anise for the 1994 Nader Galal film The Terrorist [al-erhabi] written by Lenine El-Ramli and starring Adel Imam as Ali Abd al-Zaher. Plot summary: When Ali Abd al-Zaher is hit by a car after assassinating an army officer under a directive from his spiritual leader Brother Seif [Ahmed Rateb], he receives medical care from Dr. Fouad Masoud, [Mohamed El Dafrawy] the father of the driver, who lives in a wealthy part of Cairo. While under the doctor's care Ali tries to conceal his contempt for the Western lifestyles he sees around him among the upper class Egyptians. The film was seen as an attack on Islam by many in Egypt; Adel Imam remained an outspoken supporter of Hosni Mubarak until the end of his regime in 2011.
