Film Series: Divine Intervention

2002. Palestine et al. Dir: Elia Suleiman. With Suleiman, Manal Khader. 92 min.


In the spirit of Keaton and Tati, Suleiman’s wry silent-comedy performance anchors a very “loud” situation: the day-to-day life of Palestinians in Israeli-controlled territory. Subtitled “A Chronicle of Love and Pain,” the movie plays out a series of darkly funny and visually whimsical vignettes. Co-sponsored by Students for Justice in Palestine.
