"Salam is the type of film you go to a festival to see. Writer/director Claire Fowler’s short film is layered in both its storyline and characters. With a stellar performance by Hana Chamoun, this film is worthy of a conversation after the lights come up."

"Daughter of celebrated Lebanese filmmaker Jean Khalil Chamoun and Palestinian filmmaker Mai Masri, you can say acting for Chamoun is a family affair. She made her feature film debut at the age of five in her father’s 2000 film In The Shadows of the City. Fifteen years later, she had her second major film role 3000 Nights, directed by her mother. She also starred in the Netflix Arabic Original series Jinn (2018) and the sci-fi series Medinah (2017)."

"Hana Chamoun, a talented Lebanese-Palestinian actress, was in Rochester on September 18, 2016 to talk about 3000 Nights after it screened. Moderating the discussion was Linc Spaulding from Witness Palestine Rochester. This heart-rending and amazing feature film opened the Witness Palestine Film Series at The Little Theatre."

"Ms. Chamoun is the daughter of an American/Palestinian mother and  Lebanese father.  She and Ms. Bibb are cast as mirror opposites. Claire Fowler’s credits—camera, editing, production design, sound recording, music—all tuck together into a perfect jewel of a short."
