the Actors
As illustrated by her career-defining role in FACTORY GIRL, Yasmin is one of the few daring actors in the Arab world willing to take creative risks in the subject matter of her films. In her recent starring role in KISS ME NOT, which premiered in Dubai, plays a starlet who suddenly finds religion, takes the veil and refuses to film all-important kiss. Last year witnessed her first international film, LOOKING FOR OUM KULTHUM, a Germany-Austria-Italy-Lebanon-Qatar co-production directed by Iran’s Shirin Neshat in which she plays a legend of Middle Eastern music. It premiered at the Venice Film Festival. Social Stats: Around 3 million followers on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
