SPC nabs rights to ‘Where Do We Go Now?’

Premiered at Cannes Film Festival

Sony Pictures Classics has acquired all U.S. rights to Nadine Labaki’s “Where Do We Go Now?” from Pathe Intl.

The pic, Lebanon’s entry for the foreign-lingo film Oscars this year, is set in a remote village where the church and the mosque stand side by side and follows the antics of the town’s women to keep their blowhard men from starting a religious war.

Produced by Anne-Dominque Toussaint of Les Films des Tournelles, “Where Do We Go Now?” premiered in Cannes’ Un Certain Regard section in May, then won the People’s Choice Award at the Toronto Intl. Film Festival and best European Film at the San Sebastian Film Festival.

Labaki’s “Caramel” was Lebanon’s entry for the 2007 foreign-language film Academy Award.
