Join us on Friday 13th May at SOAS, for a special screening of Elia Suleiman’s award-winning film The Time That Remains – a beautiful, unique, and deeply personal depiction of Palestine since 1948 from the internationally acclaimed director of Divine Intervention.
“Elia Suleiman has the political rigour of Edward Said and the comic genius of Buster Keaton” Sukdev Sandhu, The Daily Telegraph
“A deeply funny, deeply heartfelt and deeply outraged film that is nothing short of a masterpiece.” Jimmy Johnson, Electronic Intifada
“The Time That Remains is a semi-autobiographical film, in four episodes, about a family, my family, from 1948 until recent times. The film is inspired by my father’s private diaries, starting from when he was a resistance fighter in 1948, and by my mother’s letters to family members who were forced to leave the country. Combined with my intimate memories of them and with them, the film attempts to portray the daily life of those Palestinians who remained and were labelled “Israeli-Arabs”, living as a minority in their own homeland.” – Elia Suleiman
With a speaker from the Palestine Solidarity Campaign and Palestinian food for sale from Zaytoun.
