The daughter of Palestinians who made a home in the UK in the 1970s, Nabulsi began her career as an institutional equity stockbroker, earning a CFA designation at JP Morgan Chase. She then moved on to build a children-focused business that she ran for a decade.

Today, Nabulsi is fully focused on her production company Native Liberty through which she writes, produces, and directs fiction films that explore topics that matter to her, as well as on Oceans Of Injustice, a digital resource that she created to deconstruct the Israeli military occupation of Palestine in a manner never done before.

As someone who taught herself how to direct by reading film books and watching YouTube masterclasses with famous directors, Nabulsi's artistic advocacy today is endorsed by Noam Chomsky, Hanan Ashrawi, John Pilger, Ken Loach and others. Her film, The Present, received over 30 Audience and Jury Awards at top tier international film festivals, and was licensed internationally including to Canal+ and Netflix Worldwide.
