This month, we are pleased to celebrate and showcase the work of famed Palestinian filmmaker Elia Suleiman! Throughout his career, Elia directed four feature films –Chronicle Of A Disappearance (1996), Divine Intervention (2002), The Time That Remains (2008), It Must Be Heaven (2019) – all of which we are pleased to have available for our audiences! The films are Video-On-Demand style, so guests can view these films at their leisure and on their own time.

To make this experience complete, we are pleased to host a live, virtual talkback with Elia Suleiman himself, moderated by AFMI’s head of film programming Yasmina Tawil on May 23 at 3pm EDT.
