PLOT summary: A portrayal of the pre-Islamic era through the depiction of Al-Hareth, the head of a major tribe that practised looting, embezzlement, enslavement of women, and all those vile practices that would ensure the head’s ultimate power. His son falls in love with one of the slaves, and marries her.
Salah Abu Seif (Arabic: صلاح أبو سيف) (1915 – 1996) was one of the most famous Egyptian film directors, and is considered to be the godfather of Neorealist cinema in Egypt. Many of the 41 films he directed are considered Egyptian classics. His film The Beginning and the End (1960) was the first adaptation of a novel by Nobel Prize winner Naguib Mahfouz. In 1977 he was a member of the jury at the 10th Moscow International Film Festival.
