The day has come when Cairo-based Tunisian actor Hend Sabri will join the Editor-in-Chief for the next episode of ‘Manuel Arnaut in Conversation With…’ Today, at 10pm (UAE time)/8pm (Cairo time), make sure to tune in to what is set to be an engaging chat as the two come together on Instagram Live on @VogueArabia.
With a career spanning for more than two decades and charged with iconic roles, the actor continues to break barriers and champion social causes in the industry. However, Sabri’s accomplishments are not limited to acting within the region and go much beyond it, making her one of the most decorated Arab stars in a world that is no stranger to her talent.
Sabri also represents the regional film industry at international events where she is welcomed with due respect as she is often the first Arab woman to make it there. The actor became the first Arab woman to join the jury panel for the Luigi De Laurentiis Award at the 76th Venice Film Festival. She too became the first Arab actress to join the Rotterdam Film Festival jury panel in 2016. In 2019, Sabri made history once again by becoming the first Arab woman to win a Starlight Cinema Award. Her win was chosen at the behest of The Italian Women Journalists Foundation as “a result of her great talent and outstanding artistic career.”
In the live conversation today, expect to learn more about the actor — from her historical accolades to her more recent sartorial reinvention. The past Milan Fashion Week had been the actor’s first foray into the world of luxury fashion. “It’s new to me,” she had shared then. “I come from the cinema world so fashion to me has always been kind of intimidating. But it’s art, it’s costumes coming to life and this I relate to, so so far, it has been nice.”
