The Time That Remains (2011; 1:49 minutes) – Elia Suleiman 

Like most of Elia Suleiman’s films, The Time That Remains plays with humour and silence to portray the absurdities of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The third part of a trilogy, the semi-autobiographical film traces 60 years of Suleiman’s family history in Nazareth.
