It Must Be Heaven

Directed by Elia Suleiman

**Playing for one night only at Lux Cinema, Banff**

Director Elia Suleiman explores themes of exile, nationalism and identity in a series of vignettes, each growing more surreal than the last. With settings in locations around the world, from Palestine to New York, the film touches on the absurdities inherent in the idea of normalcy.   

Reel Time features some of the best films from the Toronto International Film Festival. Organized by Walter Phillips Gallery, Reel Time has brought alternative cinema to the Bow Valley for 15 years. Film screenings occur monthly from November – April at Lux Cinema.
