‘A Taste of Honey’

‘The funfair occupies that transitional space between childhood and adolescence. Most of us first visit the fair in the company of our parents – but with the hope of one day returning independent, off the reins, free! It’s one of those romantic scenarios we imagine will populate our projected adulthood’.

Hend Sabri in “Asmaa”

Tunisian actress, Hend Sabri, plays the role of an HIV-infected widow, in the new Egyptian film”Asmaa”. A brave step for an actress to tackle such a taboo subject in the Middle East. No stranger to controversial roles, Sabri’s breakthrough came in 2001 in a role in the film “Diary of a Teenager (Mothakarat Morahiqa) when she accepted a part that involved kissing and the suggestion of sex outside marriage. Her following movie, A Citizen, a Detective and a Thief ( Mowaten we Mokhbar we Haramy) also had Sabri engaged in risqué sex scenes.
