Ilo Ilo

The Cultural Resistance International Film Festival of Lebanon continues!

Come watch Ilo Ilo tonight at 8 pm.

***

Anthony Chen wants to show these women who rocked our childhood, the nurses living in Singaporean and Lebanese houses. In this film which moved more than thirty million people in Asia, by the subtlety of the expression of feelings it offers, Anthony Chen portrays the often unjust fate of women who give all they can give, in this difficult work they do with our children. This film questions the mother's identity, the family relationships, the human being subject to daily survival, the economic difficulties plaguing families, creating tensions and requiring painful choices - choices we all have to do every day.
