Nisreen Faour (Arabic: نسرين فاعور‎; born August 2, 1972) is a Palestinian actress from Israel, best known for her role as Muna in the 2009 American film, Amreeka.

Faour was born in Tarshiha, Israel, and moved to the United States to study theater and performance when she was 16. She studied theater in the Kibbutzim College in Tel Aviv, and theater directing at the University of Haifa, in Israel. She has performed in a number of award-winning theatrical plays. She also appeared in films such as In the Eighth Month, directed by Ali Nassar and Jamr Alhikaya (Whispering Embers). Her television appearances include Family Deluxe and Mishwar Al-Joma.

Faour's performance as Muna Farah, a Palestinian immigrant to the United States in the 2009 independent film Amreeka, received high marks from film critics. American film critic Kenneth Turan argues that, while all of the casting choices "are excellent, [...] it is Palestinian actress Nisreen Faour as the irrepressible Muna who truly owns the picture".

Muna Farah (Nisreen Faour) is a divorced Palestinian Christian mother raising her teenage son Fadi (Melkar Muallem). She works for a bank in Ramallah, part of the West Bank, Palestinian territories. Each day after work, Muna picks up Fadi from school and crosses through an Israeli checkpoint in order to get to their home in Bethlehem. She lives with her aging mother and has occasional visits from her brother Samer. One day after arriving home, Muna discovers that she has been awarded an American green card through the lottery. Although she initially considered declining the offer, Muna reconsiders after she and Fadi are harassed at the checkpoint by Israeli soldiers.
