  • Chronicle of a Disappearance

    1996. Palestine/France/USA/Germany/Israel. Written and directed by Elia Suleiman. With Suleiman, Ola Tabari, Jamal Daher. Suleiman’s acclaimed directorial debut is a meditative search for what it means to be Palestinian. Constructed as a series of witty vignettes, some contemplative, others laced with satirical humor, the film expresses Suleiman’s emotions and state of mind as he observes daily life in Nazareth, Jerusalem, and outlying areas. The director leads us on an evocative journey from an apartment in West Jerusalem to a Holy Land souvenir shop to a group of old women gossiping about their relatives. In Arabic, Hebrew; English subtitles. 88 min.
