After a long absence, Elia Suleiman returns with a poignant satire starring himself as a silent protagonist who leaves Palestine to visit Paris and New York to find producers for his next film. The world seems absurd through Suleiman’s eyes, and his journey is filled with subtle yet sharp reflections on modern-day Palestine.
