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.
