Hind Sabri Criticizes Film Moral Criticism in Egypt
The young Tunisian actress Hind Sabri has played starring roles in two Egyptian films, Muthakkarat Murahika (Adolescent Memoirs) and Muwaten Mukhber Wa Harami (Citizen, Detective and Thief).
About the reactions of the Egyptian audience to her roles in the films Muthakkarat Murahika and Muwaten, Mukhber Wa Harami, Sabri told the daily al Hayat, “I am not convinced with what is described as moral criticism of films. This should not be the way to read films. This type of criticism annoys me because I see it as impression rather than criticism.”
She reiterated that she was not ready to settle in Egypt. “I live and work in Tunisia but if there were good scripts I could come to Cairo to perform my roles provided that these are different from my roles in the previous two controversial films. I wish to tell the film directors that I would nix all the scripts similar to my performance in the previous films because I don’t have to repeat the same experience.”
Sabri has recently wrapped up shooting her role in the film Bain Maghreb Wa Eshaa by the Tunisian director Noori Bu Zaid. The film is expected to participate in the forthcoming Cannes Film Festival.
The young actress began her art career in the cinema at the age of 14 when she was discovered by the director Noori Bu Zaid who introduced her to the director Mufeedah Talatli who was seeking a star for her film Samt al Kusoor (Palaces Silence). Then Talatli tapped her for the starring role in her film Mawsem al Rijal (Mens Season).
Although the Tunisian actress managed to prove her competency through two films only and overcome all obstacles, she insisted on pursuing the study of law. She is currently gearing up for her Masters Thesis in Business Law -- Albawaba.com
