The Emigrant
(Al Mohager)

by Youssef CHAHINE


Three thousand years ago, Ram, member of a poor tribe living on arid land, dreams of a new life. He suffocates in the midst of his uncouth brethren, who, out of jealousy and greed, seek to kill him. Ram’s deepest conviction is that living from day to day, in total abandon, as his tribe has resigned itself to doing, cannot lead to happiness. To fear famine because of drought or be drowned in the torrential rains, is that not being at the mercy of the elements ? What he wants is to harness those elements. The Egypt of the Pharaohs at that time is the hub of civilization. This is where he dreams of going to educate himself.
