  2. Winner of the Jury Grand Prize at the Asia Pacific Screen Awards, and nominated for a Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival, writer-director Elia Suleiman’s "The Time That Remains" is an intimate semi-biographical portrait of Palestinians living as a minority in their own homeland between 1948 and the present day. Inspired by his father’s diaries, letters his mother sent to family members who had fled the Israeli occupation, and the director’s own recollections, the film recounts the saga of the filmmaker’s family in subtly hilarious vignettes.

    There was a post screening discussion with Steven Salaita (former Associate Professor of English at Virginia Tech) and Sherene Seikaly (UCSB Assistant Professor in History). It was moderated by Maryam Griffin (UCSB doctoral candidate in Sociology).

    SOCIAL IMPACT CINEMA: "DREAMING PALESTINE: OCCUPATION, EXILE, AND RETURN" is sponsored by the Carsey-Wolf Center, the Mellichamp Global Studies Initiative, the Center for Middle East Studies, the Department of Film and Media Studies, the Orfalea Center for Global and International Studies, and the Department of the History of Art and Architecture.
