On his wedding anniversary, Yusef and his young daughter set out in the West Bank to buy his wife a gift. Between soldiers, segregated roads and checkpoints, how easy is it to go shopping?

Palestinian British Film Director Farah Nabulsi left the corporate world in 2016 to work in the film industry as a writer and producer, exploring topics that matter to her. This includes 'Today They Took My Son', endorsed by renowned British director Ken Loach, screened at the United Nations and officially selected to top-tier international film festivals.

'The Present' won a BAFTA Award for Best British Short Film in 2021 and stars Palestinian actor Saleh Bakri, one of the best-known actors in Arab independent cinema. 'The Present' continues to pick up numerous audience and jury awards around the world. It was nominated for The Academy Awards (OSCARS®) Best Live Action Shorts in 2021.
