Director Darin J. Sallam's feature debut follows Farah, a Palestinian teenager who finds her childhood and her dreams of an education shattered following the brutal military invasion of her country. Based on true events, 14-year old Farha (Karam Taher) finds herself trapped in her family house, hiding from the Israeli military and watching an unfolding catastrophe.

Director Darin J. Sallam is a Jordanian of Palestinian descent and has directed five award-winning short films. Despite being Darin’s first feature film, Farha has enjoyed a prestigious outing and, after its premiere at Toronto International Film Festival, was selected as Jordan’s submission to the 95th Academy Awards®. While being well-received and reviewed at international film festivals, Farha and its distributor Netflix have come under attack from the Israeli government, who have called for a boycott of the streamer over this film.
