It Must Be Heaven

Available 18 June

Elia Suleiman, the central character and narrator, escapes from Palestine seeking an alternative homeland, only to realize that Palestine is always there, just behind him. The promise of a new life soon turns into a comedy of errors. However far he travels, from Paris to New York or Doha, something reminds him home: the police, border controls and racism are never far away… And while he does everything he can to integrate into a new society, trying to erase the traces of his nationality, everyone constantly reminds him of where he has come from. As he wanders and wonders, through searching and self-searching, Elia Suleiman asks the fundamental question: where can we truly call home? From award-winning director Elia Suleiman, a burlesque saga exploring identity, nationality and belonging… in which humour brings new hope for others and for Suleiman himself.
