Nadi Cinema presents an Abdel Halim Musical called Abi Fawq Al Shagara (Egypt, 1969)


Realeased in 1969, Abi Fawq al Shagara, starring Abdel Halim Hafez, is one of the biggest hits in Egyptian film history. Racy and romantic, the film epitomizes the social and generational conflicts around sexuality in Egypt and globally.

The film also contains some of Egyptian cinema's most famous musical numbers ....and a record number of on screen kisses!

Join Yalla Arabi, ACCC and AFF for this great summer film that is part of our jointly coordinated "Nadi Cinema" film series!
