Under the heat of the sun at a Spanish archeological mission in northern Jordan, local workers dig the land for long hours. The wages are poor and the cost of living is on the rise. Abo Dya, a Palestinian Jordanian, wants to provide a different life for his family, but a criminal record stymies his efforts.

Alex Sardá

Born in Barcelona in 1989 and graduated from ESCAC in 2012, he mainly collaborates with the production companies 15L Films and Nanouk Films. He directed the fiction short films ‘Gang’ (2020, Best Direction at the Cartagena International Film Festival) and ‘Fuga’ (2021, Best Short Film Actor at the Malaga Festival), and the documentary short ‘Ciutat de Granada 145-147-149’ (2020), premiered at the London Architecture Film Festival. He is also the composer of the soundtracks of ‘In the Doghouse’ (Laura Ferrés, 2014) and ‘The Long Way Home’ (Sergi Pérez, 2015). ‘Hafreiat’ (2022) is his feature debut and had its world premiere at the Sheffield Doc/Fest, after being developed at the Thessaloniki and San Sebastian’s Lau Haizetara documentary forums.
