About The Film

When a large family comes together for the first time in two years over Easter lunch, tensions bubble to the surface in surprising ways as they navigate an unforeseen conflict that threatens to derail their reunion. Older and younger generations clash as each of the family members confront their own political and moral hypocrisies and slowly unravel the ties that bind.

In his remarkable debut feature film, director Lucien Bourjeily has assembled a phenomenal ensemble cast for a tense and provocative slice-of-life dramedy that elevates dysfunction to astounding levels. Heaven Without People transcends cultural boundaries and captures the inherent claustrophobia of quality family time with such uncompromising sincerity and humor that it is sure to leave audiences simultaneously squirming and delighted.

- Ana Souza, Head of World Fiction
