====================================
“Where Do We Go Now?”
(France / Lebanon, 2011)
Winner of the People’s Choice Award, TIFF, 2011

Thursday, October 4, 2012
Chaplain’s office, Wycliffe College (basement)

6:00 – Dinner
7:00 (or so) – Something After Dinner – film, discussion etc.
===================================

Set in a remote village where a Christian church and a Muslim mosque stand side by side, this film follows the antics of the town’s women as they try to keep their men from becoming part of the religious violence engulfing the country.

The town is surrounded by land mines and only reachable by a small bridge. As civil strife engulfs the country, the women in the village try, by various means and to varying success, to keep their men in the dark, sabotaging the village radio, then destroying the village TV.  Heartsick over sons, husbands and fathers lost to previous flare-ups, the women unite to distract their men with clever ruses, from faking a miracle to hiring a troop of Ukrainian strippers. The village is slowly drawn into greater violence; but the women get along beautifully and conspire together to try to keep their men from fighting in what one reviewer calls, this “vibrant pacifist fable.”

Please join us for dinner at 6pm on Thursday followed, around 7:00 , by the film and some conversation. And if we’re really fortunate the legendary, but elusive, homemade caramel popcorn might make a reappearance.

Shalom,
Geoff
