the Actors
One of the most prolific Arab performers today, Hiam has in the past couple of years alone shifted seamlessly from French cinema to Tunisian and Palestinian films, while also finding time to appear in the Hollywood extravaganza BLADE RUNNER 2049 and two episodes of THE OA on Netflix. Even without moving the needle commercially in terms of box office clout, this actress remains an Arab film industry icon – and one recognizable the world over after her 2007 breakthrough with THE VISITOR. Hiam has also written, directed and produced a few shorts and is looking to direct her second feature A GIRL MADE OF DUST about a family living in a village near Beirut during the 1980s Lebanese civil war.
