It Must be Heaven
Category: Cinema
Year: 2016
Status: Open

The director-played by himself-escapes from Palestine looking for an alternative homeland only to find that Palestine is trailing behind him. The promise of a new life turns into a comedy of errors. Paradoxically, wherever he goes, he feels at home!



The Time That Remains - Feature Fiction
Category: Cinema
Year: 2007
Status: Closed

The Time That Remains is a semi biographic film, in four historic episodes, about a family –Elia’s family - spanning from 1948, until recent times. The film is inspired by Suleiman’s father’s diaries, spanning from his time as a resistant fighter in 1948, to Elia’s mother’s letters sent to family members who were forced to leave the country. Combined with intimate memories, the film attempts to portray the daily life of those Palestinians who remained in their land and were labeled « Israeli-Arabs », living as a minority in their own homeland.
