Comedy | Palestine | Arabic & French with English subtitles
Directed by Elia Suleiman
Starring Elia Suleiman, Tarik Kopty, Kareem Ghneim
“A profound burlesque comedy” Vanity Fair
Elia Suleiman (as himself) 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 ES asks the fundamental question: where is the place we can truly call home?
“Whimsical and wistful yet infused with a yearning for the stability of place…Palestinian director Elia Suleiman continues to relish the minutiae and absurdities of daily life via vignettes of life at home and abroad.” Variety
