Our Palestinian American producer raised with one foot in the Arab world and one in the West, has a passion for storytelling through film and a unique ability to connect two sides of what may be the world’s widest cultural gap. Her life experience as the daughter of refugees and someone who was raised in host countries, was an inspiration point for the film, allowing her to lend a voice of Arab authenticity and speak from a personal perspective on the current refugee crisis.
In July of 2015, Salam was honored by the U.S. Department of State for her efforts as a Muslim woman storyteller who is working to challenge the negative stereotypes depicted in the media. Previously, Salam worked in development/production with film director Robert Rodriguez on projects with George Clooney and many other talented artists. She began her career at Apple’s renowned ad agency, TBWA Chiat/Day, creating some of their award winning work. See more here.
