Special Presentation: It Must Be Heaven



FIPRESCI Prize - 2019 Cannes Film Festival
Special Mention - 2019 Cannes Film Festival
ES 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 (Divine Intervention), It Must Be Heaven is a comic saga exploring identity, nationality and belonging, in which Suleiman asks the fundamental question: where is the place we can truly call home?
