Awarded with the Jury Prize at the Festival de Cannes 2018 with her powerful film Capernaum, also nominated for a Golden Globe and an Oscar for Best Foreign Film, Nadine Labaki has been weaving a story with the Festival for many years. After signing award-winning commercials and music videos, she took part in the Résidence de la Cinéfondation of the Festival de Cannes in 2004 to write and develop Caramel, her first feature film, a joyfully impertinent ode to female solidarity and the biggest success of Lebanese cinema abroad. In 2011, she presented Where Do We Go Now? in the Un Certain Regard selection, a bold, universal fable about tolerance, and in 2014, she directed O Milagre for the sketch film Rio, I Love You. She is currently working on her next film.
