nadine labaki x2
an actor and director, this woman is insanely gorgeous and brilliant. i’ve only watched these two films, and if i can obtain the others i will. for now, these two will do. they’re both in arabic (lebanese) but i’m sure subtitles are available.
سكر بنات - sukkar banat - caramel (2007)
A romantic comedy centered on the daily lives of five Lebanese women living in Beirut.
و هلق لوين - wu hala’ la wein - where do we go now? (2011)
A group of Lebanese women try to ease religious tensions between Christians and Muslims in their village.
this is such a gorgeous film, very heartwarming. soundtrack is lovely. the entire thing is a beautiful watch. great for movie nights
