Tunisian filmmaker Kaouther Ben Hania, on Saturday, won the Citizenship Prize, bringing to four the number of awards she has received for her film "Four Daughters» which is running in the official competition of the 76th Cannes Film Festival. The Citizenship Jury, chaired by Maria de Medeiros, noted "this film allows us to understand how violence is reproduced across generations, and the way it is shot frees a stifled voice and opens up the possibility of reading the world". The film has so far won four prizes: the 8th Semaine du Cinéma Positif Prize, the Special Mention of the Jury of the 27th Prix François-Chalais, the L'Oeil d'Or Documentary Prize and the Citizenship Prize. At this year's Cannes Film Festival, Kaouther Ben Hania's fifth feature film, "Four Daughters» was the only Arab film in the official feature competition.
