Film: Chronicle of a Disappearance (Elia Suleiman, 1996) / 88 min
Deceptively simple and executed with a documentary feel, this drama represents a highly personal journey home of ex-patriot Palestinian filmmaker Elia Suleiman. The film is divided into two sections. The first documents the paradoxical but sleepy existence in the Arab part of Nazareth. The second part takes a more political view of the city and in it, Suleiman takes a more active role.

The film garnered worldwide critical acclaim for its seemingly uneventful, but covertly subversive depiction of Palestinian life in Israel. In his fragmented, personal, self-critical, and low-key way, Suleiman makes his point that the disappearance he's chronicling is that of the identity of his people.

The film was shown at the 1996 Venice Film Festival, where it won the award for Best First Film Prize.

Enjoy the festival with a culinary unique experience of Palestinian Rice table dinner at Love & Peas!
