ِA Day in San Francisco with Nadine Labaki and Khaled Mouzanar

December 2018 was a month to remember because I finally got to meet and interview two amazing Lebanese artists whom I have long admired:  Lebanese Director Naine Labaki and her husband Composer/Producer Khaled Mouzanar.  The couple was in San Francisco to promote Labaki's new film Capernaum.

Here are some pictures and short video clips from that day--including some that were taken at an exclusive screening of Capernaum by the AFMI which overseas the Arab Film Festival.  Here I must thank Serge Bakalian and Sony Picture Classics for making this interview possible.  Shukran also to Ahmad Anka for taking the pics + videos.
