Green Door Film Society Screens “Where Do We Go Now?”

Where Do We Go Now? is the next film to be screened by The Green Door Film Society on Nov. 15 at Greens N Grains Natural Food Store and Cafe. Where Do We Go Now? tells the story of a remote, isolated unnamed village inhabited by Muslims and Christians where church and mosque stand side by side.

The film, directed by Nadine Labaki, follows the antics of the town’s women to keep the men from starting a religious war. The village is ringed with land mines, and the cemetery is filled with the bodies of young men who have died in sectarian warfare. Women heartsick over sons, husbands and fathers lost to previous flare-ups unite to distract their men with clever ruses.

Labaki’s decision to not name the country, which is assumed to be Lebanon, suggests that she conceived Where Do We Go Now? as a comic allegory about religious intolerance and male belligerence.

An organic dinner will be served before the screening at 6 pm for $7.50. Screenings are held bi-weekly at 7 pm.

There is no charge, but seating is limited to 28 people. For reservations call 920.868.9999 or email [email protected].

Greens N Grains Café, located at 7821 Highway 42 in Egg Harbor, is open daily from 9 am – 4 pm, and until 9 pm on movie nights.
