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!
