It Must Be Heaven

Dir. Elia Suleiman. Palestine, 2019. 1h 42m. French/subs. Starring Elia Suleiman, Tarik Kopty, Claire Dumas, Ali Suliman, Vincent Maraval, Antoine Cholet.

A filmmaker escapes from Palestine seeking an alternative homeland. The promise of a new life turns into a comedy of errors and no matter how far he travels something always reminds him of home. Award-winning director Elia Suleiman reflects on the absurdity of nationalism and identity in this fascinating blend of comic vignettes. Winner of the International Critics Prize at the Cannes Film Festival.

‘It funny and astute without ever compromising one for the other. The more one learns about the film’s sociopolitical context, the more daring it seems.’ ★★★★★ Charles Bramesco, Little White Lies
