The Delfina Foundation presents:
The Time That Remains
The Time That Remains (2009, 105 min) is a semi-biographical film by the award-winning Palestinian-Israeli director, writer and actor, Elia Suleiman. The film is inspired by his father's diaries of his personal accounts, starting from when he was a Resistance fighter in 1948, and by his mother's letters to family members who were forced to leave the country since then. The narrative unfolds over four historic episodes. Combined with Suleiman's intimate memories of them and with them, the film attempts to portray the daily life of those Palestinians who remained in their land and were labelled 'Israeli-Arabs,' living as a minority in their own homeland.
The screening will be introduced by independent curator and writer Rasha Salti, followed by a discussion moderated by Stuart Comer with Elia Suleiman and architects Eyal Weizman and Sandi Hillal of Decolonizing Architecture, followed by a Q & A session.
This screening of The Time That Remains is part of a series of programmes produced by Delfina Foundation and the London/Bethlehem-based practice of Decolonizing Architecture. Founded by Sandi Hilal, Alessandro Petti and Eyal Weizman, Decolonizing Architecture attempts to articulate the potential of architecture in opening an 'arena of speculation' that incorporates varied cultural aesthetic and political perspectives. The programme with Delfina Foundation includes residencies in Bethlehem, Palestine, a panel discussion at Tate Modern on 25 May, and a concurrent exhibition at Delfina Foundation.
