We're thrilled to screen, The Time That Remains, the latest film from Palestinian director Elia Suleiman, one of the world's most celebrated filmmakers.

This dark comedy is Suleiman's semi-autobiographical account of Palestinian life from the 1948 formation of Israel—referred to as "the catastrophe" by Palestinians—to the present day. The film comprises four episodes of family stories based on Suleiman's father’s diary entries as a resistance fighter in 1948 and his mother's letters to loved ones who were forced to leave the country. Starring Suleiman and Saleh Bakri. (109 mins., 35mm)

"Imagine a heroic poem boiled down to a flurry of witty epigrams, or a martial statue made of origami, and you will have some idea of the improbable way this filmmaker folds big themes into delicate forms."—A. O. Scott, New York Times

Note: Due to unforeseen circumstances, Elia Sulieman will no longer be in attendance to introduce this screening.
