Set against the backdrop of the 1967 Six-Day War, the movie adaptation of Naguib Mahfouz’s novel follows the escapist, drug-fueled riverboat meetings of a group of frustrated Egyptians from various walks of life.

Embark on a journey with “A drift on the Nile,” a captivating film that introduces us to a lively group of middle-aged friends. Night after night, they gather on a luxurious houseboat for dancing, romance, and indulging in the pleasures of hashish. However, when a young journalist pays a visit to write a story about the group, is shocked to uncover the profound social isolation they endure.

Directed by Hussein Kamal, “Adrift on the Nile” boasts the atmospheric cinematography of Mostapha Emam, along with a delightful and vibrant musical number in color. Don’t miss the chance to experience this revealing exploration of society and self, beautifully captured on the silver screen.
