Khansa Batma wins best actress award at the Venice Film Festival

Written by FDM

Beautiful consecration for Khansa Batma. During the legendary Venice Mostra film festival, which was held from September 2 to 12, the Moroccan artist won the best actress award in the Horizons category.

The grand jury of the “Orizzonti” (Horizons) category at the 77th Venice Film Festival awarded the best actress award to Khansa Batma for her role in the film “Zanka Contact” by Ismaël El Iraki.

The first feature film by Moroccan filmmaker Ismaël Iraki, “Zanka Contact” tells the love story between Larsen, a has-been rocker, and Rajae, a prostitute who aspired to become a singer, played by Khansa Batma. Alongside the singer, we find notably Said Bey, Ahmed Hammoud, Abderrahmane Oubihem and Mourad Zaoui.

Due to the travel restrictions in relation to the coronavirus pandemic, the musician and actress received her award and spoke via videoconference during the ceremony. She also thanked the entire film crew by writing a long message on Instagram:  “This award is simply the result of teamwork. In the absence of certain conditions which form the very basis on which a film is built, the actor, regardless of how talented he is, will not be able to “play.”

“Team #zankacontact, you were this solid base which made my first step in cinema a magical experience, It will be forever engraved in my mind. I love you, congratulations to us ”.
