Her first feature film “Salt of This Sea” premiered in Cannes in 2008 and was also the Palestine’s Oscar entry for Best Foreign Language Film.
"When I Saw You" is set in 1967 Jordan and tells the story of Tarek, an 11-year-old wild child, who runs away from a Palestinian refugee camp in search of freedom. Jacir lived in Jordan after being exiled from Israel, which opposed the politics in her films.
“When I Saw You” was produced by Philistine Films and producer Ossama Bawardi. It received prize money from Abu Dhabi Film Festival. Its TIFF screenings were sold out with a 40 minute Q&A after its second public screening. It is being sold by The Match Factory
