It Must Be Heaven is the Palestinian entry for the Best International Feature Film at the 92nd Academy Awards in February.
Directed by and starring Elia Suleiman as himself, the plot is that Suleiman escapes the Palestinian territories only to find that he encounters similar problems wherever he goes.
Describing himself at the Morocco film festival, Suleiman said “I wish to drown Israel, but I cannot. So I resort to ridicule the reality I live in, What I do is a way to resist …. When we laugh and enjoy a comic scene, time stops and gravity disappears, then we return to resistance, and when you put your feet on the ground and you return to bitter reality, you find strength for resistance.”
We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
