It Must Be Heaven

Dir: Elia Suleiman
Elia Sulieman escapes from Palestine seeking an alternative homeland, only to find that Palestine is trailing behind him. The promise of a new life turns into a comedy of errors: however far he travels, from Paris to New York, something always reminds him of home.

2019 | France, Canada, Palestine, Turkey | 97 mins | English and French with English subtitles.
Special mention: Cannes Film Festival (2019).
“Stylishly made with a distinctive signature.”
“For Suleiman, comedy is a kind of rhetorical non-violence…it points you in the direction of a political situation…”
