You've done a valiant search!

Additional suggestions:
(1) Did you speak personally with anyone at Arab Film Distribution, ie, not
just checking their catalog?

(2) Contact folks at: www.arteeast.org (NYC based non-profit that brings
films from the ME)

(3) Put this question out on an academic listserve for people who are
specialists in the Middle East, Egypt, Egyptian cinema. Perhaps get leads through the
Middle East Studies Association.

(4) Contact Viola Shafik, author of Arab Cinema, and professor at American
University of Cairo.

Let me know if you find the films!
