Palestinian Film – ‘It Must Be Heaven’

About the film
Elia Suleiman 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. From award-winning director Elia Suleiman, a comic saga exploring identity, nationality and belonging, in which Suleiman asks the fundamental question: where is the place we can truly call home?

“David Stratton was enraptured by It Must Be Heaven. Elia Suleiman’s minimalistic and whimsical semi-comedy of a globetrotting Palestinian who is followed by reminders of his home.” (Cinema Nova)
