For her acting in Death of a Poetess Saraya won the Best Actress Award in the 2017 Jerusalem Film Festival.

A delicate, poetic cinematic work, consisting of two parallel axes. Lenny Sadeh is a Tel Aviv-based scholar who embarks on a day-long, dark, urban journey. Yasmin Nasser, an Arab nurse who lives in Jaffa, undergoes a harsh interrogation that leaves her stupefied. By pure coincidence, the two women run into each other for a single evening that binds their fates inextricably together.
