Dec 7 – Langer Film Series: Where Do We Go Now Set in a remote village where the church and the mosque stand side by side, the film “Where Do We Go Now?” follows the antics of the town’s women to keep their blowhard men from starting a religious war. Women of the town are heartsick from losing the men they love to violent religious conflict – so they distract them in the biggest, zaniest ways they can muster. Their clever ruses range from faking a miracle to hiring a troop of Ukrainian strippers.
