Kaouther Ben Hania
Director and Writer
Kaouther will head the jury for Critics’ Week in Cannes Film Festival this year, recognition for a career that saw her 2020 film THE MAN WHO SOLD HIS SKIN become the first Tunisian film ever nominated for an Academy Award. Kaouther has just finished shooting her new docu-drama OLFA’S DAUGHTERS with Hend Sabry recreating the real-life story of a mother whose daughters become enmeshed in ISIS. And joining several other leading Arab filmmakers, she contributed to the Netflix anthology film: LOVE, LIFE AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN.
