Tripoli, 5 July 2013:
An award-winning Lebanese film about a . . .[restrict]group of women who try to ease religious tensions between their Christian and Muslim menfolk living in the same village, will be shown at Tripoli’s Art House tomorrow night.
Directed by Nadine Labaki, Where do we go now? is set in a remote Lebanese village, surrounded by an area that has been land-mined and is only accessible via a bridge. As the rest of the country becomes embroiled in a civil war, the women of the village take increasingly drastic measures to prevent their menfolk from finding out and embarking on a religious war that would threaten their peaceful village life.
Where do we go now? is in Arabic with English subtitles. The showing starts at 6 pm on Saturday 6 July. The Art House is on Al-Sekka Road in Tripoli.
Tomorrow’s film-screening is organised by the Arete Cinema Club. Cinemas and theatres in Libya were closed for decades and the cinema club aims to reintroduce films to the community. [/restrict]
