Written and directed by Nadine Labaki, this heart-warming modern fable follows Labaki's impressive directorial debut Caramel. Set in a small, isolated Lebanese village, a group of Muslim and Christian women band together to ingeniously devise a plan to distract the local menfolk in an attempt to defuse mounting inter-religious tensions.
Most days, the women gather at the cafe of feisty Christian widow, Amal (Labaki), to work on joint projects and share gossip and song. These resourceful women, of all ages, shapes and sizes, united by their unwavering friendship, try almost every means at their disposal. As a series of chaotic incidents tests the women's ingenuity, can they manage, with their usual sass, to successfully stave off the fall-out from the distant war?
Extraordinarily inventive and often comical, Where Do We Go Now? received a five minute standing ovation at its Cannes premiere and won the Audience Award at the 2011 Toronto Film Festival.
