Tripoli, 7 November 2013:
There will be a showing in Tripoli tonight of Caramel, . . .[restrict]an internationally-acclaimed Lebanese film about the lives of five women.
Rather than dealing with political problems or previous conflicts, the 2007 film explores issues affecting women, such as forbidden love, duty versus desire, traditions and sexuality.
Caramel is in Arabic, with English subtitles.
The film is part of the Arete Cinema Club’s new season of screenings. Cinemas and theatres in Libya were closed for decades and the Arete Cinema Club aims to reintroduce films to the community. Screenings this season will include some of the best of new Arab cinema as well as Hollywood hits and classic European films.
The screening of Caramel starts at 5 pm on Thursday 7 November. The Art House is on Al-Sekka Road in Tripoli, near the Prime Minister’s Office. [/restrict]
