CAPHARNAÜM by NADINE LABAKI, in cinemas February 7, 2019

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, Nadine Labaki’s CAPHARNAÜM tells the story of Zain, a Lebanese boy who sues his parents for the “crime” of giving him life. The film follows Zain, a gutsy streetwise child as he flees his negligent parents, survives through his wits on the streets, takes care of Ethiopian refugee Rahil and her baby son, Yonas, being jailed for a crime, and finally, seeks justice in a courtroom.

The film was made with a cast of non-professionals playing characters whose lives closely parallel their own. CAPHARNAÜM is a film with an expansive palette: without warning it can ignite with emotional intensity, surprise with unexpected tenderness, and inspire with flashes of poetic imagery. Although it is set in the depths of a society’s systematic inhumanity, CAPHARNAÜM is ultimately a hopeful film that stirs the heart as deeply as it cries out for action.
