The drama surrounding the film "Fareha", a film by director Doreen J.
Salam, in which Israeli soldiers are presented as cold-hearted murderers who execute a family, including a one-year-old baby, refuses to die.
The film, which was chosen to represent Jordan in the race for the Oscar in the foreign film category, will be released on the Netflix streaming service worldwide on December 1, and today (Wednesday) Minister of Culture Hili Troper also addresses the issue.
"This morning I learned that the Al Saraya theater in Jaffa intends to screen the Jordanian film 'Paraha' tonight.
The decision of a supported theater in Israel to screen a film that, according to reports, includes false plots against IDF soldiers, describes the slaughter of a family while comparing it to the behavior of the Nazis in the Holocaust, is particularly outrageous. The fact that an Israeli theater gives a platform to lies and plots is a disgrace.
"I call on the management of the theater to withdraw from the decision to screen this film," Trooper stated firmly and added: "Also, I appeal to the Minister of Finance Mr. Avigdor Lieberman, in whose hands the authority rests, to examine the budgeting issue of this institution, in light of his choice to screen this film."

In the film in question, which has already been shown at various festivals around the world, the War of Independence is presented from a one-sided Palestinian point of view, and also includes a shocking scene in which IDF soldiers massacre a Palestinian refugee family, leaving a one-year-old baby to die in the field. The hard-to-watch scene shows the IDF soldiers as violent and cruel Especially, and if he eventually arrives at the international ceremony, it is likely that this will not be the last time that he will cause echoes and noise in the world.

The El Saraya Theater is located in Jaffa in the building where the Arab-Hebrew Theater is located, but according to Yigal Ezrati, CEO of the Jaffa Theater, they only share the same building and have no artistic connection between them.
The building belongs to the two associations, the Arab-Hebrew Theater Association and the Al Saraya Theater.
We share the days, Wednesdays are theirs.
"We are not partners in the artistic program and this morning I heard from the media about the screening in question," he told Israel Hayom.
The response of Mahmoud Abu Arisha, CEO of the Al Saraya Theater, could not be obtained before the time of publication of the news.
