Description

MONDAY 7 MAY 6.00PM
THE NIGHT OF COUNTING THE YEARS/AL-MUMMIA
Dir: Shadi Abdel SALAM | Egypt | Arabic with English subtitles | 1969 | 102 mins | UC18+
Main Theatre

“The Night of Counting the Years, which is commonly and rightfully acknowledged as one of the greatest Egyptian films ever made, is based on a true story: in 1881, precious objects from the Tanite dynasty started turning up for sale, and it was discovered that the Horabat tribe had been secretly raiding the tombs of the Pharaohs in Thebes. A rich theme, and an astonishing piece of cinema.” (Martin Scorsese).

Preceded by THE ELOQUENT PEASANT (Dir/Sc: Shadi Abdel SALAM, Egypt, 1970, 21 mins, Arabic with English subtitles, UC/18+) Shadi Abdel Salam’s only other dramatic film work, adapted from the Ancient
Egyptian pharaonic literature of the Middle Kingdom, 2200 BC.

Australian Premiere. The Eloquent Peasant introduced by Rod Bishop.
The Night of Counting the Years introduced by Phillip Adams.
Restoration of Shadi Abdel Salam's films undertaken in 2009 and 2010 by The Film Foundation’s World Cinema Project at Cineteca di Bologna/L’immagine ritrovata laboratory in association with the Egyptian Film Center. Restoration funding provided by Armani, Cartier, Qatar Airways, Qatar Museum Authority and the Egyptian Ministry of Culture.




Join us for a celebration of screen heritage and preservation, with a showcase of recently restored and archival films.

Over five days, Cinema Reborn, presented in partnership with AFTRS, will screen 16 feature films to shine a light on the long history of the art of cinema and film restoration and the treasures that exist in the world's film archives.
