Hi videolib,

I have a professor who would like to teach these films by Hassan
al-Imam. They are based on the Cairo Triology novels by Naguib Mahfouz:
_Palace Walk_ and _Palace of Desire_

Any tips on sources for DVD would be appreciated. I tried arabfilm but
don't know where else to look for Egyptian titles.

She is also looking for more information on the third film, which would
have been based on the third book in the trilogy, _Sugar Street_

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
