The Time That Remains, Elia Suleiman, Fance, 2009, 109 mins, Arabic/Hebrew with English Subtitles
Subtitled Chronicle of a Present Absentee, this humorous, heartbreaking film (the final installment in a trilogy that includes Chronicle of a Disappearance and Divine Intervention) is set among Palestinians living in Israel and shot largely in homes and places in which Suleiman’s family once lived. Inspired by his father’s diaries, letters his mother sent to family members who had fled the Israeli occupation, and the director’s own recollections, the film spans from 1948 until the present, recounting the saga of Suleiman’s family in elegantly stylized episodes. Inserting himself as a silent observer reminiscent of Buster Keaton, Suleiman trains a keen eye on the absurdities of life in Nazareth. His father is played in the film by the renowned Palestinian actor Saleh Bakri. The film was released in 2009 to much critical acclaim at the Cannes Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festival.
