"Where Do We Go Now?" a bittersweet comedy set in war-torn Lebanon, bested two well-received entries starring George Clooney to win the people's choice award Sunday at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Lebanese director-actress Nadine Labaki proves all those who insist there are no strong female voices in the Arab world wrong with "Where Do We Go Now," a film that fairly shouts its feminist message from the rooftops.
"I'm thrilled, I'm happy, I'm ecstatic, I'm excited _ my day that had just started on the wrong foot because of a flight cancellation has just been turned upside down," the 37-year-old Labaki said in her statement.
Labaki wrote the screenplay for the film which was shot on location in three remote Lebanese villages with a cast made up almost entirely of nonprofessional actors.
