Debuts on Blu-ray™ and DVD September 11th
Culver City, CA (July 23, 2012) – Sony Pictures Classics and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment are pleased to announce the Blu-ray™ and DVD release of WHERE DO WE GO NOW? on September 11th. Directed by Nadine Labaki (Carmel), who co-wrote the film with Jihad Hojeily and Rodney Al Haddad, in addition to playing one of the lead roles, was Lebanon’s official selection in the Foreign Language category for the 2012 Academy Awards®.

WHERE DO WE GO NOW? blends humor and lighthearted musical moments to take a powerful look into the deeply routed religious differences between Christians and Muslims living in a small Lebanese village. This film festival favorite won the People’s Choice Award at the 2011 Toronto Film Festival, was a nominee for the “Un Certain Regard” Award at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, and won the Audience Award at the 2011 San Sebastian Film Festival.
Set in a remote village where the church and the mosque stand side by side, WHERE DO WE GO NOW? follows the antics of the town’s women to keep their blowhard men from starting a religious war. Women heartsick over sons, husbands and fathers lost to previous flare-ups unite to distract their men with clever ruses, from faking a miracle to hiring a troop of Ukranian strippers.
