The Jordanian film Farha, by Jordanian director Darin G. Salam, in which IDF soldiers are seen murdering a Palestinian family during the War of Independence, will be released on Netflix on Thursday. The film takes place in 1948 in Palestine and is about a 14-year-old Palestinian girl whose father locks her in a warehouse to keep Alia because of IDF attacks in the village.

As mentioned, the film includes, among other things, a scene in which IDF soldiers execute a family with a baby. "Fareha" was also chosen to represent Jordan at the Oscars this year.



The film was screened at several festivals around the world, including the Toronto festival. The director said on stage there that her film is based on True stories she heard. "I heard about a Palestinian girl who was locked in a room to protect her life.

She also shared this story with a Syrian girl who grew up and got married, and she shared this story with her daughter, which is me.

Since then I haven't stopped thinking about this girl." In the trailer for the film it is stated that it is based on true stories.

On her choice to make the film, which was chosen to represent Jordan in the competition for the Oscar for the international film, she added: "Many directors talk about Palestine, but I felt that there was nothing about the origin of everything that is happening today, which is 1948. I felt that the Nakba catastrophe is an important event that is being ignored, and that is missing In Arab cinema. There are documentary films, but there are no feature films, which are the films that evoke and convey more emotions."



Netflix chose not to comment.
