Winner of the Jury Award at Cannes Film Festival 2018, writer-director Nadine Labaki (Caramel, Where Do We Go Now?) returns with the powerful Capernaum. This stunningly realised drama charts the journey of children on the edges of society who find hope in spite of the challenges of their everyday lives. Zain (Zain Al Rafeea) is a young boy living with his family in an impoverished Beirut neighbourhood. Wise and street-smart beyond his years, Zain’s resentment towards his parents builds and, following a series of tragic events, he is compelled to sue them for bringing children into such a world.
