Divine Intervention



Directed by: Elia Suleiman

(90 mins) Heralded by critics from the New York Times, Washington Post, and Time Magazine as “One of the top ten films of the year,” “Blissfully surreal, a one-or-a-kind experience,” and winner of the Jury Prize at the Chicago International Film Festival and the Fipresci Prize at Cannes, Suleiman’s critically-acclaimed satire chronicles the absurdities of life and love on both sides of the Palestinian-Israeli border. Like his Chronicle of a Disappearance Suleiman mixes tragic comedy and deadpan irony to explore the contemporary lives and realities of Palestinians in both Israel and the Palestinian Territories.

In Arabic with Hebrew and English subtitles.
