Bristol Palestine Film Festival 2019: It Must Be Heaven

Elia Suleiman
Running Time
97 mins

Veteran Palestinian director Elia Suleiman (Divine Intervention, The Time That Remains) takes a typically deadpan comedic look at the meaning of being in exile in latest film, which won a Jury Special Mention at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Playing his alter ego ES, he flees Palestine in search of an alternative homeland, only to find that something always reminds him of home.

It’s on screen as part of the Bristol Palestine Film Festival.
