ANGELIKA’S NOTE

"Director and co-writer Nadine Labaki has a careful, delicate hand when it comes to balancing the precious and the poignant" (TIME Magazine). Labaki's (CAPERNAUM, CARAMEL) WHERE DO WE GO NOW? centers on a group of Lebanese women who cleverly band together to attempt to ease religious tensions between Christians and Muslims in their village. A Sundance and Cannes Film Fesitval Official Selection brings a new perspective to the genre, and was Lebanon's submission for the Best Foreign Language Film category at the 84th Academy Awards. At its time, it was the highest-grossing Arabic Film, until it was surpassed in 2018 by Labaki's own CAPERNAUM.
