Considered one of the great stars of Egypt, Adel Imam first came to public attention on stage in the play “School for Rebels/Dunces”. He started his career very young, and worked alongside the biggest names in theater at the time, such as Ismail Yassin. His extensive filmography includes around 100 titles, from the 1960s until the present day, and is a testament to the richness and eclecticism of his talent. He manages to combine humor and sadness to denounce religious fanaticism and extremists through films in which he plays victims of injustice and poverty, such as THE TERRORIST by Nader Galal. A discreet actor who never hesitates to tackle political subjects and to defend minorities, he notably played the lead in THE YACOUBIAN BUILDING by Marwan Hamed.
