Annemarie Jacir's Second Film 'When I Saw You' Nears Completion just announced that Annemarie Jacir’s second feature film “When I Saw You” is near-complete. Set in Jordan in 1967, When I Saw You (Lamma Shoftak) follows the story of Tarek, an eccentric and unbounded young boy, and his mother Ghaydaa, who have just become refugees from Palestine. Except Tarek is a boy with a free spirit and curious nature; one that doesn’t allow anyone to limit his dreams…

This low budget, independent film was made possible because of the support and generosity of several organizations and people including the Sanad, AFAC, Abu Dhabi Film Commission, K. Shoman Foundation, Tribeca Film Institute, Dubai Film Connection, Landmark Hotel, Thessaloniki Post Production Award, ATICO, …

The Director needs your support for the final part of the process…. She has begun the process of festival submissions, creating marketing materials like posters, postcards, etc., updating their very out of date website.  

The success of this campaign depends on your contribution. Filmmaking is a collaborative effort -- it takes a crew, a cast, and supporters like you. And most of all, an audience.
