Actress Yasmin Raeis Takes Part in the Opening Ceremony of Carthage Film Festival


Egyptian star Yasmin Raeis heads to Tunisia to attend the screening of her film Factory Girl in the opening ceremony of Carthage Film Festival. The film has earned her two awards in international film festivals. Yasmin will attend the screening within the festival, which runs from November 29 - December 6, 2014.

In Factory Girl, Yasmin plays Hiyam, a 21-year-old factory worker, who lives in a lower-middle-class neighborhood, along with her co-workers. She is clearly under the spell of Salah, the factory's new supervisor, who has expressed his admiration for her. She believes love can transcend the class differences between them. However, when a pregnancy test is discovered in the factory premises, her immediate family and close friends accuse her of sinning. Hiyam decides not to defend herself and pays an enormous price in a society that fails to accept independent women.

For her outstanding performance in Factory Girl, Raeis walked away with the Best Actress Award from Dubai International Film Festival in 2013, where the film had its world premiere within Muhr Arab Feature Competition, and won the Best Actress Award from Malmo Arab Film Festival in Sweden.

The 25th Carthage Film Festival will feature films from 45 countries including 25 films from Africa and the Arab world, and 9 Arab countries will be contending with 10 films at the Official Competition Feature Films.
