Elia Suleiman’s internationally acclaimed film "Divine Intervention" will be screened to close the evening. Released in 2002, this film is known for its unique blend of dark humour, surrealism, and social commentary and explores the daily challenges and absurdities faced by Palestinians living under occupation.
