Young Egyptian actress Hannan Turk has been nominated for the leading role in the upcoming film "Ous Wi Lazi'" (Cut and Paste) alongside young actor Sharif Muneer.
The film, directed by Hala Khalil, marks her second film, the first being "Ahla Al Awqat" (The Best of Times), which won her favorable reviews.
Hannan recently flew to Canada to take part in the Montreal International Film Festival. Hannan’s new film “Dunia” (World), written and directed by Joe Sileen Saab, is competing in the festival.
The film also stars Egyptian singer Mohammad Muneer, who plays a young singer who meets Hannan, and eventually the two make their way to Cairo to pursue their dreams.
After Hannan returns from Canada, she will head to Jordan, where she will sit on the judging committee of the Jordanian Film Festival.
Hannan was recently in Syria filming outdoor scenes for her upcoming movie “Al Aba’ Al Sighar” (Young Fathers) costarring Syrian actor Duraid Laham, also the writer and director of the film.
