12-minute Egyptian propaganda film about Suez Crisis and attack on Port Said - the title explains its stance. Included as bonus item on

Nothing on imdb but info at http://www.colonialfilm.org.uk/node/2511 and reference pages at Link to "letterboxd.com" and Link to "www.themoviedb.org" .

A diametrically opposite message to /movie.php?id=2250044 and a fairly crude production which is often unconvincing - apparently some footage of devastation may have been "borrowed" from other conflicts - but it seems when watching both films together that this one has some genuine grievances which are delicately airbrushed out of the British version of a controversial episode. There are also some completely different claims about which side did what - for instance blowing up bridges across the Canal, who sank blockships and planted mines in the canal, how much of Port Said was destroyed by military bombardment, whether there were civilian casualties and in what numbers, etc.

All footage should be Egypt, in and around Port Said.
