The Tunisian-Egyptian actress has won her third award for her film 'Noura’s Dream' during the online award ceremony held at the virtual Cannes Marché du Film.
Tunisian-Egyptian actress Hend Sabry just nabbed the Best Actress award for her latest film Noura’s Dream (2019) at the fourth edition of the Critics Awards for Arab Films by the Arab Cinema Center (ACC). The virtual event was held during the Cannes Marché du Film (Cannes Film Market).
The film, by Tunisian writer-director Hinde Boujemaa, sees Sabry giving a heart-wrenching performance as working-class protagonist Noura, who struggles with an abusive relationship while acting as her family's sole caretaker and striving to find happiness and emotional fulfilment through it all.
Sabry had already bagged two other awards for her role in this film, winning Best Actress in a Feature Narrative Film last year at Carthage Film Festival in Tunisia and at the El Gouna Film Festival (GFF). The talented actress shed tears of joy while accepting her award at GFF, mentioning how the film’s not only special because of the story it tells, or because of how her collaboration with Boujemaa started at GFF in 2018, but because she was able to receive these awards in both of her homelands: Egypt and Tunisia.
Luckily for you all, you can stream Noura’s Dream right now on Netflix.
