Where Do We Go Now? • The Next Reel

We continue our 10 Year Anniversaries series with Nadine Labaki’s 2011 film ‘Where Do We Go Now?’ Labaki uses a touch of magical realism and musical elements to weave a tale of an isolated village where the woman try to keep the men from going to war with one another. We had a great time with this movie, which surprised both of us with its tone that balances comedy and drama well. It’s a fun conversation too! Tune in!

"Even dead, they’re divided.”

Nadine Labaki started as an actress but starting in 2007 with Caramel, she started working as a writer/director. Her films look at life in Lebanon but through unique prisms that aren’t confined by the grim realities. In her 2011 film Where Do We Go Now?, Labaki uses a magical realist tone with musical elements to craft a story about the women in an isolated village working together to stop the men – divided by Christian and Muslim faiths – from constantly fighting. Join us – Pete Wright and Andy Nelson – as we continue our 10 Year Anniversary series with Labaki’s Where Do We Go Now?.

We clearly enjoy Where Do We Go Now? and have a lot to say about Labaki’s film.

This is a film that may work for some people and not others, but it worked for us. The story shines with magical realism, creating this —Hold on there! This is currently only available for members.
