Dir: Nadine Labaki | 120 mins | Lebanon/USA | 2018 | 15A

This powerful drama from Nadine Labaki (Caramel) chronicles the beleaguered life of 12-year-old Zain (Al Rafeea). Overcome with anger, when his 11-year old sister is married off, Zain escapes from his parents and begins a journey that leads to him filing a lawsuit against his parents for giving birth to him. Capernaum stunningly portrays Zain’s anger, determination and courage. 

“A howl of protest against social injustice, a film as grounded in a place and time and yet as universal in its empathy with the dispossessed as Bicycle Thieves or Salaam Bombay” - Lee Marshall, Screen Daily 

Cannes Film Festival 2018 Winner Prix de la Citoyenneté
