“The Time that Remains” film screening
Sunday, March 20, 2011
A beautiful, unique, and deeply personal depiction of Palestine since 1948 from the internationally acclaimed director of Divine Intervention, Elia Sulieman. The Time That Remains is a semi-autobiographical film, in four episodes, about a family from 1948 until recent times. The film is inspired by the director’s father’s private diaries, starting from when he was a resistance fighter in 1948, and his mother’s letters to family members who were forced to leave the country. 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.
