Nadine Labaki, Where Do We Go Now?

After her first success with Caramel, Nadine Labaki returns to directing, this time with her new film “Where do we go now?”. A social comedy that showcases another face of Lebanon that people are not familiar with. It seems that this genre is becoming a specialty of Nadine and she does it very well. The images are rich with color and content and the main theme is a serious issue in that part of the world. The approach is rather surreal, in a good way, with a musical touch and that is probably what makes watching it a treat. It won the 2011 People’s Choice award at the Toronto International Film Festival, the 2011 Audience Award at Oslo Films from the South Festival and the Audience Award at San Sebastián International Film Festival.

And here is the trailer of Caramel, if you have not seen it already. It is a recommended view.
