Society serves up Lebanese film and food at popular evening
Batcombe Film Society hosts one of its popular film and food nights on Saturday with a screening of Where Do We Go Now? (12A) and food from the Lebanon.
Directed by and starring Nadine Labaki this bittersweet comedy is set in a remote Lebanese village where the church and the mosque stand side by side.
The film follows the antics of the women to keep their men from starting a religious war.
The women, heartsick over sons, husbands and fathers lost to previous flare-ups unite to distract their hot-headed men with clever ruses and thus hold the community together.
