A short film by award-winning Nadine Labaki along with her husband and music producer, Khaled Mouzanar, is set to debut on the new Netflix series ‘Homemade’ on June 30th.
Netflix recently unveiled the trailer of the upcoming series, which is a collection of 18 short films created by renowned filmmakers from around the world.
According to the streaming platform, the films are inspired by life in confinement, a consequence of the global pandemic.
Directors from around the world will creatively capture the experience of life in quarantine using only the equipment found in their homes.
“This is a celebration of the craftsmanship of filmmaking and the enduring power of creativity in the face of a global pandemic,” says Netflix.
Nadine Labaki, whose film Capernaum is slated to debut on the streaming service, will join the roster of acclaimed directors telling a story of the outbreak.
She will be joining the masterminds behind Les Misérables, Black Panther, The New Pope, and more.
“This question has been tormenting us as parents for a while: How are our children perceiving or living the confinement? What goes on in their minds?” says Labaki, being a mother of two.
“When the producers of Homemade contacted us to be part of this project it was the perfect occasion for us to explore this dimension,” Labaki said.
Stay tuned as the films will be released globally on June 30th!
