|My life is laughable a permanent comedy of errors like this film itself. Elia Suleiman
A journey from realism to surrealism and back: in his film Chronicle of a Disappearance, told in diary-fashion, Suleiman shows a series of ironic scenes from rural life around Jerusalem. For example, the place where Jesus supposedly walked on water. Tourists leave so much litter there that no one would think of doing such a thing anymore. In Venice Suleimans work was awarded the prize for the best debut.
