A nostalgic journey through the golden era of Egyptian film Egyptian lobby cards combined a film's poster art, still photographs from the set, and a credit list that usually included the production company, cast and crew, director, screenwriter, and music composer--excellent tools for the study of the history of cinema and highly desirable collectors' items. Pierre Sioufi (1961-2018), iconic collector, artist, and revolutionary godfather to young activists who led the 2011 Egyptian uprising, amassed a vast quantity of cinema ephemera over the course of his lifetime. Dream Factory on the Nile presents a glimpse of his extensive collection of Egyptian film lobby cards spanning the growth, glory years, and decline of Egyptian cinema between the 1930s and 1990s. Includes a concise introduction by Rasha Azab to the history of Egyptian film production from its birth in Alexandria at the turn of the twentieth century to the late 1990s.
