Nadine Labaki, Where Do We Go Now?



Lebanon’s Nadine Labaki refers to her country as tiny, without a film industry but there’s nothing insubstantial about Where Do We Go Now?, the writer-director-actress’s sophomore effort that opened MoMA’s New Directors/New Films this year, won the People’s Choice Award at Toronto’s film festival and was nominated by the Broadcast Film Critics Assn. as Best Foreign Language Film.

By turns hilarious, serious and musical, Labaki pulls off a high wire balancing feat as she considers a tiny Lebanese village where the Christian and Muslim women band together to keep peace and stop the killing. Labaki stars as the widowed café owner while the intoxicating score is by her husband Khaled Mouzanar.
