What are you planning to watch next? 

Tomorrow directed by Cyril Dion and Mélanie Laurent.  It's French film (originally titled Demain) about 2 actors who go around the world exploring different ways to live life and doing things to help the environment. 

What are you currently reading?

I'm reading Resist, a book about activism.  Where I live in Lebanon over 50% of people are living below the  poverty line.  There was a revolution here in October last year, now there is a limit to how much money people can take out of the banks.  The country is also under lockdown, but people are having to break it to go out and earn some money still. 

How about music?

I'm currently working with my husband and a group of friends and artists on a song that encourages people to grow seeds and vegetables in their homes, on their balconies and on their rooftops to promote sustainable living, especially during these difficult times.

Nadine Labaki's latest film Capernaum is now available to watch at home. 

Capernaum was recently included in Cate Blanchett's Films For Hope selection. Watch the video here
