[Videolib] Copies and PPR - a lost cause?

An instructor wants our International Film Festival committee to consider two Egyptian films which involved Nobel lauriate, Naguib Mahfouz. Both are 1967 films. The first is "El Saman Wal Karif" (Dir. Houssam El-Din Mustafa) and the second is "Kasr El Shawk" (Dir. Hassan Al Imam). Both films are listed on IMDB, but I find nothing in OCLC Worldcat, Kino, New Yorker, Swank, Arab Film Distribution, Facets, Alibris, Amazon, or BTE.

I despair of finding copies, let alone tracking down the rights to show them. Does the collective wisdom have any ideas?

Thanks for any help you can give!!
