About friendship between Soviet people and Arabs working together to build the gigantic Aswan Dam.
In Egypt Chahine shot his first joint Soviet-Egyptian film called al-Nas fil-Nil (People of the Nile or People and t...展开he Nile) . The film was about the Aswan Dam and Chahine used the plot of the film to uncover the problems of the contemporary Arab society, featuring the rural Egypt and the issues surrounding the idea of building the huge dam over the Nile. The film was ready in 1968. Neither the Soviet nor the Egyptian governments were satisfied with the ideological taking of the film, and al-Nas fil-Nil showed up in cinemas only in 1972.
