The Time that Remains – at דינה دينا Dina


Elia Suleiman’s film, The Time that Remains: Chronicle of a Present Absentee, will have a special screening on Sunday, June 6 at 21:00, in a unique location – דינה دينا Dina, a café and place for culture. Journalist Jumana Saalem will introduce the film, of which Midnight East’s Shlomo Porath says:

In addition to everything else, it is also a very, very funny film. Often Suleiman is delivering a gut-punch while you laugh, but there are numerous endearing jokes that are incidental to the story. It is one of his hallmarks- the humor and the pathos generally go hand in hand, but humor is its own reward. It’s what makes Suleiman not only a formally thrilling and politically essential filmmaker- but a generous one as well. He wants the audience to enjoy themselves. Sometimes he wants you to laugh at the composition of a scene while recoiling from its implication, sure. But his films are rich in practically every way a film can be rich. They are political yet personal, resigned yet enraged, heartbreaking yet hilarious- all presented with the richest cinematic form, which, even with its parts of Jacques Tati, Buster Keaton and Godard, are as a whole completely unique. read more…
