Caramel is the first feature film by Lebanese director/actress Nadine Labaki and was distributed in over 40 countries, easily becoming the most internationally acclaimed and exposed Lebanese film to date. The film made its debut in May of 2007 at the Cannes Film Festival.

Set in a hair salon in Beirut, Caramel narrates the intersecting lives of five different women,  beautifully showcasing the themes of aging, family, duty, feminism, queer identity, virginity, sisterhoods, traditions, desires, and love (in all its forms). Throughout the journey, Caramel keeps an honest, yet joyful and tender tone. Come watch this internationally acclaimed and award-winning film!

Oppression of Our Identities:
Hate Crimes and Suicidepreventsuicides
Wednesday| October 20 | 5-7pm
LGBT Resource Center

We all have identities that are oppressed, and at the same time, without thinking, we oppress the identities of others. Dynamics of privilege and oppression lead to groups and individuals feeling devalued and at times worthless. Although each person is fundamentally valuable, oppression leads to incidences of hate, and, as can be seen through the five incidences currently in the news, can lead to suicide. What can we do to remedy this? How do we heal our communities? How do we make each individual understand theirs and others fundamental worth as human beings?

Come learn and discuss. Snack and refreshments will be provided. For questions, comments, or concerns, contact cklemmer@ucsd.edu
