From the organizer:
If you haven’t watched a Lebanese film before or you are interested in it, come along to “Caramel” Movie Day with Helping Hand Saigon at Snap café. For more information, see below:
This film won several awards at the San Sebastian Film Festival and was officially selected for the Cannes Film Festival. “Caramel” has an optimism born not of dreamy romanticism but of resilience and a degree of hard-headedness. Life for these women is not easy or especially fair, and each of them faces moments of humiliation, loneliness and potential heartbreak. But in the best melodramatic tradition, their toughness, good humor and loyalty see them through. Those qualities, and Ms. Labaki’s evident affection for the battered panache of her native city, make “Caramel” hard to resist.
