Hend Sabry has been honoured with the award for Best Actress at the Carthage Film Festival 2019, for her poignant portrayal of Noura in Hinde Boujemaa’s drama, Noura's Dream. 

The Tunisian film festival, which ran from October 26 to November 2, saw a diverse range of talent from across the Arab film industry nominated for several prestigious awards, but it was Sabry's stand-out performance that earned her significant recognition. 

Noura's Dream follows the gripping story of Noura (Hend Sabry), and her desperate attempts to escape the fierce clutches of her abusive husband. The film, directed by Hinde Boujemaa, also won the Golden Tanit award for Best Feature Film.

Sabry shared the news on social media in a series of heartfelt posts written in Arabic, where she said the feeling was "indescribable".
