I don’t know when or if any of these movies are coming to Chambana, but check them out here, and look for them at area theaters.
(WOMENSENEWS)–Two movies released this month are so stunning that they’re likely to wind up on many critics’ top-10 lists at year’s end.
Lebanese director Nadine Labaki’s “Where Do We Go Now?” opening May 11, is about Muslim and Christian women who’ve raised families side-by-side in a rural village. When incidents incite their menfolk to violence, they work collectively to calm things down. Their peace-preserving tactics range from chastisement to comedic distractions. From the film’s opening sequence featuring a beautifully choreographed brigade of female mourners, the ensemble of actresses — Labaki among them — captures your heart and never lets go. You must see this film, which so beautifully celebrates women’s resolve and the successful application of love and humor in foreboding circumstances.
