The today’s Poster Monday “Raya & Sakina” corresponds to a play directed by Karima Beder based on real events about the sisters, known as the first and one of the most infamous serial killers in Egypt. The poster captures the tension of the play, a story of horror and madness through a good color management and excellent photographic work. The poster as the play is a chronicle of the terrible story of the trial that would end with the death sentence for the two sisters.
