"Where to? Where Do We Go Now?" symbolizes these common questions frequently asked, answered in the artwork by Nadine Labaki and how she redefined the image of Arab women as "feminine, alluring, and in control".

The title is based on two movie titles: "Ila Ayn?" directed by George Nasser in 1957, followed by "W hala'a La Wein?" directed by Nadine Labaki in 2010.

Half a century after George Nasser represented Lebanese cinema at the Cannes Film Festival in 1957, Nadine Labaki's debut film Caramel premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2007. She was the first female Arab director to be nominated for an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film.

In Nasser's "Where to?", the father abandons his family and leaves for Brazil, leaving the mother to raise her children with great difficulty.

In Labaki's "Where to Now?", it is the women who band together and conspire together challenging their husbands and sons.
