Divine Intervention - 2002 film directed by Elia Suleiman. At the center of the Middle East conflict, hearts beat in tragic comedy and deadpan irony: a sexy young Palestinian woman defies Israeli soldiers and struts through a checkpoint as if it were the catwalk of a fashion show. Santa Claus is chased up the sun-drenched hills of Nazareth by a gang of knife-wielding school kids. Israeli police use a blindfolded prisoner to provide directions to tourists in Jerusalem and a female ninja descends from the sky, holding a map of Palestine as her battle shield. These are but a few of the provocative images put forth in Elia Suleiman's critically acclaimed satire chronicling the absurdities of life and love on both sides of the Palestinian-Israeli border Stars Elia Suleiman, Manal Khader, Nayef Fahoum Daher and Amer Daher. Unrated, in Arabic, Hebrew and English with optional English subtitles. 92 minutes.
