Chitchat on the Nile, 1971, 115 mins (English subtitles)
Tuesday 24 July, 6.30pm
Chitchat on the Nile tells the story of an ordinary Egyptian bureaucrat, Anis (played by Emad Hamdi), who cannot tolerate the corruption of the Egyptian state (for whom he works at the Ministry of Health) and the ignorance of his society and decides to hide from all the problems in the country by taking refuge in a secret den of drug addicts, artists and dilettantes…an extraordinarily modern and daring film which remains banned in a number of Arab countries, made as Egypt was entering the era of economic liberalisation under President Sadat.
