Nadine Labaki is ready to ‘Go’

'Where Do We Go Now?' is follow-up to 'Caramel'

PARIS — Lebanese helmer Nadine Labaki is set to helm the dramedy “Where Do We Go Now?,” a follow-up to her critically acclaimed feature debut “Caramel.”

The e4.5 million ($6.7 million) film is co-penned by Labaki and produced by Anne-Dominique Toussaint’s Les Films des Tournelles (“Respiro”), who also produced “Caramel.”

Pathe handles international sales and is co-producing, in association with Middle Eastern channel UAG, part of Arab Radio and Television Network (ART).

Set in an isolated Lebanese village where Christians and Muslims live peacefully, “Where Do We Go Now?” turns on a group of women who hatch plans to distract the village’s men from the distant war and defuse interreligious tensions.

“?’Where Do We Go Now?’ carries a political message, but it’s mostly a tale of humanism, friendship and solidarity, which shares similarities with ‘Caramel’ in its portrayal of women,” said Toussaint. “But it’s conceived on a bigger scale than ‘Caramel.’ We’re shooting with two cameras over nine weeks, on location, with lots of extras.”

Toussaint said music will play an important part in the film since the actresses will sing and dance to songs penned by popular Lebanese musician Khaled Mouzanar.

Apart from Labaki, most in the cast are Lebanese non-pros.

A tale of five Lebanese women working in a Beirut beauty salon, “Caramel” bowed at Cannes to rave reviews and played theatrically in all major territories, including the U.S.
